Bullock was born in Stoke-on-Trent and began his career with Stoke City. He made his debut for Stoke in a 4–1 defeat away at Swansea Town on 19 April 1958 at the age of 16 years and 163 days becoming the club’s youngest player, he also scored Stoke’s goal thus becoming youngest goalscorer. He scored five goals in 13 appearances in 1958–59 but injury kept him out of the entire 1959–60 season. He returned to the side in 1960–61 under new manager Tony Waddington playing in 19 matches scoring five goals. He scored five goals again in 1961–62 and was sold to First Division Birmingham City for a fee of £10,000. He was never able to live up to his potential at Birmingham and after making 28 appearances in four years he left for Southend United.
Bullock didn’t stay long at Roots Hall quickly moving to local rivals Colchester United with whom he helped gain promotion from the Fourth Division in 1965–66. He scored 15 goals in 1966–67 as the “U’s” finished in 13th position, but relegation was suffered in 1967–68 and Bullock joined Exeter City in August 1968. He spent just three months at Exeter before returning to Staffordshire and played for non-league Stafford Rangers. He made a short return to professional football playing seven matches for Walsall before retiring.
Bullock comes from a footballing family. His elder brother Brian was an amateur with West Bromwich Albion and Stoke City, and younger brother Mickey had a long playing career before going into management. His son Simon played for Halifax Town while Mickey Bullock was manager there

Born in Walsall, West Midlands, Hawley started his career for his hometown team Walsall but only played one league game. While at the Bescot Stadium he also spent loan spells at Raith Rovers and Hereford United, where he scored once against Burton Albion.
After his release by Walsall in 2004, Hawley joined Southern Football League side Hednesford Town, but only made one start for the Pitmen, playing in a league game against Hinckley United. He was again released towards the end of the 2003–04 season. Hawley joined Conference team Carlisle United in the summer of 2004 and played a part in their return to the Football League. He was the League Two top scorer in the 2005–06 season, forming a successful partnership with Michael Bridges as Carlisle achieved a second successive promotion to League One. Hawley was voted League Two Fans’ Player of the Year and was part of the League Two Team of the Year. In May 2007, Hawley was offered an improved contract by Carlisle manager Neil McDonald, but Hawley rejected the offer and left the club on 11 May 2007. In three seasons for Carlisle United he was the club’s top scorer.
He signed for Championship side Preston North End on 14 June 2007, on a three-year contract. After making 26 appearance and 3 goals in League and 2 in FA Cup at his first season for Preston, Hawley suffered poor forms for Preston in his second season and got less playing time under manager Alan Irvine. Also during his time at Preston, Hawley also struggled to replicate the goal scoring form he showed at Carlisle and joined Northampton Town for a one months loan where he made 11 appearance and scoring two. Afterwards, Hawley returned to the club despite Northampton Town was keen to extend his contract. Afterwards his loan finish with Northampton, Hawley returns to Preston and as made just five substitute appearances in the League and 2 starts in League Cup and eventually Hawley join Colchester United on month loan deal along with Neal Trotman and made 4 appearance.
He signed for League Two side Notts County on 3 August 2009, on a three-year contract for an undisclosed fee to revive his career. In his first season for Preston, Hawley made total of 38 appearance(31 in League, 6 in FA Cup, 1 in League Cup and 1 in Football League Trophy) and scoring 4 (3 in league and 1 in FA Cup). Under manager of Cotterill, Short, Paul Ince and Martin Allen, Hawley fell out with favour due to that he has struggled to make an impact for Notts County and his poor performance struck again. In May 2012 he was released by Notts County, along with 12 other players.
On 31 January 2012 Hawley signed, on loan until the end of season, for Crawley Town. However, Hawley made four appearance and return to Notts County, with another disappointing loan spell.
Having been released, Hawley went on a trial at Doncaster Rovers. On 7 September 2012, he signed a short term deal with League 1 side Scunthorpe United. At Scunthorpe United, Hawley made an impressive display at the club, with five goals in seventeen appearance. In January, Hawley signed a new contract, with the club until the end of the season as his old deal expires in January.
On July 1 2013 Hawley signed a two-year deal with Torquay United scoring 3 goals in 30 appearances. However on 29th August 2014 Karl and the club agreed to terminate his contract by mutual consent. On 5 September 2014 Hawley signed a one-year deal with Conference Premier Alfreton Town.When this contract finished Karl signed for Stourbridge
