Harold Barton

A forward who made 12 appearances by the end of his debut season when Liverpool finished a disappointing twelfth. Although he was overlooked for the first dozen or so fixtures the following season, he was a regular in the side from November 1930 onwards. The 1932/33 season was his most productive as he scored 13 from 36 matches, including a hat-trick when Liverpool crushed League Champions Everton 7-4 at Anfield on 11 February 1933. The eleven goals scored in that game is easily the highest aggregate ever scored in a Merseyside…

Kop Quote

Paul Walsh on his Liverpool career

"For the first three years, life at Liverpool was brilliant. It didn't worry me that I was in competition for one of the striking places with Kenny Dalglish, Ian Rush, David Hodgson and Michael Robinson. I was confident in my own ability by this stage and I was absolutely flying. Unfortunately for me, the Heysel Stadium disaster came on the night when I should have been playing in the European Cup Final. Of course, 38 people lost their lives that night, so what happened to me is insignificant, but it should have been one of the highlights of my career.

In the year afterwards, I had scored 18 goals in 24 games when I was injured during a game with Manchester United at Anfield when my ankle became got caught in between Kevin Moran's legs as we challenged for a ball. I was out for seven months and, by the time I was ready again, Kenny Dalglish had bought John Barnes, Peter Beardsley and John Aldridge. I think he wanted his own men in."
