Hilal played 3 games for the Uni White B’s before getting his chance to impress in the A’s. A goal on debut with his first touch, was soon followed by a transfer to Pulteney.

‘Pulling a Hilal’ is still used when something is achieved for the first time at the Whites.

To pull a Hilal: To score on debut for one’s team. For a proper Hilal it has to be with the first touch.
