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.

Aitken returned to amateur football in the North East after he left Liverpool, but did play one league game for Hartlepools United in 1935/36. He went into the building trade, settling in Newcastle, where he died in 1984.
