Player profile

This goalkeeper's career for Liverpool seems unusual in that he only appeared in FA Cup matches for the club, three of them to be precise. However, he was also one of an astonishingly high number of men, 38, who represented Liverpool during that 1945/46 season in the Football League North which are not usually included in official records as most clubs had numerous guest players. In the cup, "Fred" played in both legs against Chester and in the second leg against Bolton which Liverpool won 2-0. But as they had already lost the first match by five goals, it was the team from Burnden Park that progressed into the fifth round. Fred played ten times in goal for the club in the 'unofficial' league matches and the 5-0 home defeat by Manchester United on 16 February 1946 was perhaps not surprisingly his last!
