He came through the Crystal Palace academy, under former United manager Neil Warnock, but was not given a chance by Iain Dowie or his successor Peter Taylor, and was sent on loan to Lewes of the Conference South to gain experience during the 200607 season, scoring on his debut. Whilst at Palace he made one senior appearance in the Championship and was involved in three loan deals from 2006 to 2008. He made his debut for Palace on Saturday 10th November 2007 as a sub in a 1-1 draw at home to Queens Park Rangers and also made one substitute appearance for them in the F.A. Cup before moving to League Two side Dagenham & Redbridge on loan on 10th June 2008, where he impressed enough to have the loan spell extended for a second month. He returned to Palace on 12th March 2008, having scored twice in two starts and six substitute appearances for them. He then moved to Crawley Town on loan from 27th March 2008 and scored twice in five starts and two games from the bench. After a short spell at Bradford Park, where he scored twice in his only appearance, he moved to Bromley on a permanent basis on 1st August 2009 and stayed there until 17th July 2010. He scored sixteen goals in fifty-eight games for the Conference South side. On 25 March 2009, Hall played as a trialist for Grimsby Town Reserves against Hartlepool United Reserves. On 22nd May 2010, Hall was called up to the England C team by manager Paul Fairclough. He made his debut for England C as a substitute for Max Porter against Republic of Ireland Under-Twenty-Three team in the International Challenge Trophy on 26 May 2010. He signed a pre-contract agreement with Southend United on 16th July 2010 due to the club being under a transfer embargo. The transfer embargo was lifted on 6th August 2010 and his transfer was registered to the F.A. He missed Southend's first game of the season against Stockport County due to suspension after he had picked up a red card playing for Bromley in the last game of the previous season. He made his debut for Southend against Bristol City in a 3-2 home win in the League Cup on 10th August 2010. He scored his first goal for Southend on 15th January 2011, just thirty-two seconds at Millmoor against Rotherham United in a 21 win. On 3rd March 2011 Hall was sentenced to Twenty weeks imprisonment after pleading guilty to affray after an incident outside a Southend nightclub at the club's Christmas party on 19 December 2010. The court heard that Hall retaliated to racist comments made to him, and that he suffered a broken jaw in the altercation. Southend United insisted the player would not be sacked. On 4th March 2011, Hall was granted bail pending an appeal against the severity of the sentence, and his sentence was reduced to 12 weeks, with the sentence suspended for a year, and one hundred and fifty hours of community service. He signed a two year extension to his contract at Southend on 14th April 2011. He was second in Southend's Player of the Year award for 2010-11, due to his ability as a goal provider. In his second season, 2011-12, at Southend he scored fourteen goals and maintained his extra-ordinary ability as a goal provider. In August, Peterborough United made a bid for him. In the 2012-13 he had a falling out with manager Paul Sturrock and joined Blackpool on trial and started training with the club on 13th September 2012. Blackpool had a bid for him accepted, but the move fell through as they were unable to agree personal terms. Matters had deteriorated and Hall was unable to return to Southend, and he had to train alone. Leeds made an approach on 9th October 2012, and on 13th October terms were agreed for Hall to initially sign on loan, with the move to be made permanent in the January 2013 transfer window. The move reunited Hall with Manager Neil Warnock who had sold Hall when both were at Crystal Palace. He duly signed for Leeds for 150,000 on a two and a half year contract to June 2015. While at Southend Hall had scored nineteen League goals in seventy-two starts and fourteen games from the bench. He also had scored once in three starts and three games from the bench in the F.A. Cup, no goals in two starts and two substitute League Cup appearances and three goals in eight starts and one game from the bench in the Johnstone Paint Trophy and other games. After signing on loan with Leeds he sat on the bench unused on the 19th October game at Hillsbrough with Sheffield Wednesday, and the following game at home to Charlton Athletic, before being given his debut as an eighty-second minute substitute for David Norris in the home game with Birmingham City on 27th October 2012. He was ineligible for the next game at home to Southampton in the League Cup but was once more unused on the bench at Brighton & Hove Albion in the next fixture. He was an Half-Time substitute in the Watford debacle at Elland Road on 10th November 2012, and made his starting debut in the away game at The Den with Millwall on 18th November, but gave way to Ross McCormack after sixty-five minutes and was unused on the bench at home to Crystal Palace and Leicester City and a sixty-third minute substitute for Jerome Thomas at Huddersfield Town, a game in which he set up two goals, which saw Leeds win 4-2. He against started at Derby County, but gave way to Luke Varney after sixty-eight minutes before being unused at home to Ipswich Town and ineligible for the League Cup tie with Chelsea. He was next on the bench at Hull City on 29th December 2012 and at home to Bolton Wanderers on 1st January 2013, the day he signed his permanent deal. He had started two games and come on as substitute in three games during his loan period. Since his permanent deal, Hall has started in the F.A. Cup tie at home to Birmingham City, in which he gave way to El-Hadji Diouf at half-time, and came on as an eighty-eighth minute replacement for Ross McCormack at Crystal Palace, a fifty-ninth minute replacement for Habib Habibou at home to Huddersfield Town and a ninetieth minute replacement for Paul Green in the final game at Watford, but has been an unused substitute in many other games in that time. The 2013-14 season brought no further games for Hall, apart from a couple of times that he sat unused on the bench and, on 20th September 2013 he was loaned to League One side, Sheffield United for one month. He made his Blades debut on 21st September 2013 in a 0-1 home defeat by Preston North End and went on to start three and come on once as a substitute in the League and made one appearance from the bench in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy before returning to Elland Road. He had not long returned when his contract was suspended due to infringement of club discipline on 21st October 2013. On 21st November 2013 his contract was cancelled by mutual consent. On 6th December 2013 he offered to play for Bromley at no cost to the club and started six games for them in the Conference South League. He joined League One side MK Dons on 1st February 2014 on a free transfer hoping to re-establish himself in the Football League. He made his debut for them as an eighty-fifth minute substitute for Daniel Powell in a 3-0 away win at Walsall, making his first start in the 0-2 home defeat by Peterborough United on 15th March 2014, when he was replaced after seventy-seven minutes by Giorgio Rasulo. His first goal came in the seventy-ninth minute of a 1-3 home defeat by Leyton Orient in the final game of the season on 3rd May 2014. It was the only goal he scored for them in making four starts and seven substitute appearances in the League. He was not retained at the end of the season and on 26th June 2014 he was signed on a free transfer by Rotherham United who were newly promoted to the Championship League. He made his debut for them in the League Cup in a 1-0 win over Fleetwood Town on 12th August 2014 but was substituted by Ben Pringle in the ninetieth minute. He made a scoring debut in the League when he came on as a half-time replacement for John Swift, with a goal in the seventy-sixth minute to get the only goal in a 1-0 home win over Wolverhampton Wanderers on 16th August 2014, where he was, in turn, replaced by Kieran Agard three minutes after the goal. He made his run-on debut at Ipswich Town in a 0-2 defeat on 27th August 2014 but was substituted by Matt Derbyshire on the hour mark. It was his only goal in two League starts and one as a substitute and one start in the League Cup. He was loaned to League Two side, Notts County, on 27th November 2014 until the end of December 2014. He made his Magpie's debut as an eightieth minute substitute for Garry Thompson in a 1-1 draw at Sheffield United on 28th November 2014, before starting in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy 1-0 away win at Doncaster Rovers on 9th December 2014, but was replaced by Garry Thompson after seventy-five minutes. His League run-on debut came at Rochdale in a 2-2 draw in which Drissa Traore replaced him after eighty-two minutes. He then joined League Two team, Luton Town, on an eighteen month contract on 1st February 2015, making his debut on 7th February 2015 in a 1-1 draw at Oxford United, making way for Mark Cullen on the hour mark. By the end of the 2014-15 season he had four games and come off the bench on three occasions in the League.
