James Garner

Just five Football League matches are recorded for Garner in Liverpool's colours, spread over two seasons. He played three consecutive games at right-back as Tommy Lucas was out injured in December 1924 and in the penultimate game of that season at left-back. His fifth and final appearance came in the 1-1 home draw with Leeds on 10 October 1925 once again standing in for Lucas. Garner featured regularly for Southport in Third Division North, but a knee injury restricted his progress during his one year at New Brighton 1927-1928.

Kop Quote

Gary Gillespie on Kenny Dalglish as manager

"Kenny’s transition to manager was so smooth. He was amazing because he combined being your mate and being your boss at the same time. Not many more managers could pull that off and it was tricky sometimes because you didn’t know of he was talking to you as a mate or a boss. Having said that, he used to always have a go at me more anyway. I was his whipping boy."
