Was Hectors hut named because of Big Hec? If so, why? Just curious

Don't know how it came by it's name, but I remember playing my first football match for South Shields under 13's there against Seaham Harbour, who walloped us.

We used to play at Cleadon Rec regularly.
I don't think Hector's Hut was named after Big Hec or Hector's House, as it was known as Hector's Hut before these two phenomena had graced our lives! :lol:

The best bit about playing or watching footie games there was the fish and chips at Park Avenue chippie afterwards!
