Biography

A powerful and burly centre-forward, Hankin started his career at Burnley, where he scored 37 goals in 112 games and won three caps for the England U23 side. He moved to Leeds United in 1976 and after missing most of his first season through injury, he became top scorer in 1977/78 with 20 goals. He moved across the Atlantic to join the Vancouver Whitecaps of the NASL.

In November 1981 he briefly moved back to England to join Arsenal for £400,000, with the fee dependent on Hankin's performances. After making just two League Cup appearances, Arsenal reversed their decision and let Hankin return to Vancouver.

Johnny Giles signed him in January 1982 for Shamrock Rovers for a short spell and he scored on his debut in Sligo on the 24th. He made a total of 5 appearances for the Hoops scoring twice.

He briefly returned to Vancouver before finally returning to join Middlesbrough. He saw out his career at Peterborough United and Wolverhampton Wanderers. He also had a brief spell as Darlington manager in 1992.

Hankin's career was blighted by his disciplinary record with a large number of red cards to his name which came to overshadow his goalscoring record.
