Player profile

Cunliffe scored more than 40 goals for Lancashire league's Oldham County in the 1896/97 season before he arrived at Anfield to try to soften the departure of George Allan back to Scotland. Cunliffe made 14 first division appearances for Liverpool during the 1897/98 season and scored five times. Numerous changes were made to the club's forward-line during that season and Cunliffe only featured in three of the games played during the second half of the campaign. He also played in four FA Cup ties for Liverpool, scoring the winner in their 2-1 second round replay with Newton Heath in the middle of February 1898. Daniel Cunliffe is a well-known name in Portsmouth's history. He joined Pompey before their first season, 1899/00, and impressed so much that he was chosen to represent England against Ireland in his only international on 17 March 1900 after helping Portsmouth to finish runners-up in the Southern league. Cunliffe played a total of 284 matches for Portsmouth in two spells and scored 157 goals.
