Goalkeeper Michael Hilton was at Norwich City's academy for seven years reaching the Under-16 squad for the 2004/5 season. On his release in the summer of 2005, he trialled with York City and became one of their new intake of trainees along with Jason Smith (ex-Preston), Anthony Taylor (ex-Blackburn) and homegrown talents Michael Walsh, Mark Holt, Ben Thornton, Danny Phillips and Chaz Wrigley.

Released by York, Hilton played in Kings Lynn's pre-season friendlies against Norwich City (lost 4-0) and Cambridge City (lost 5-1). After a short spell with Fakenham, he then signed for Ridgeons League side Diss Town

Hilton left Diss in the summer of 2008 after being offered more money by Great Yarmouth Town

On 14th July 2011, Hilton signed for Wroxham and is now locked in a battle with legend Scott Howie for the No 1 jersey. ‘I was delighted to sign Michael and have always discussed with Scotty that we need someone capable of challenging him. Michael is young, kicks well and is a good size so I am confident that he can do this’ commented David Batch.
