Hugall started with his local clubs Sunderland Co-operative and Whitburn before joining Second Division Clapton Orient in 1910. He soon established himself as their goalkeeper and had made sixty-eight League appearances and one F.A. Cup appearances before WW1 brought a halt to the Football League fixtures. Like many Clapton Orient players he joined The Duke of Cambridge's Own (Middlesex Regiment) 17th (Service) Battalion (1st Football) and rose to the rank of Lieutenant. He was twice wounded in action but recovered to return to football at the end of the War. He played his only game for Leeds City as a guest in November 1918 in a 2-1 home win over Bradford City. He returned to Clapton Orient where he made another seventy-two League appearances and had two more F.A. Cup games before leaving for Hamilton Academical at the end of the 1921-22 season. He only played one season in Scotland before returning to his native North-East in 1923 with Third Division North Durham City where he played thirty-five League games and a further three appearances in the F.A. Cup before retiring at the end of the 1923-24 season. He died in 1927.
