Player profile

Goalkeeper Andrew Aitken made his one and only Liverpool appearance in a 3-3 draw away to Blackburn Rovers on 27 December 1930. Arthur Riley was Liverpool's main keeper at the time and Aitken had virtually no chance of establishing himself as the legendary Elisha Scott was Riley's understudy. Aitken's Anfield career was cut short when he broke his leg in a 6-1 loss against Stockport County's reserves on 4 April 1931. He returned to amateur football after he left Liverpool, but got back into the League scene with third division north's Hartlepools United.
