West Derby-born Danny Shone joined Liverpool from local amateur side Grayson's of Garston, a well-known local shipping company.
He made his Liverpool debut on the opening day of the 1921-22 season, a disappointing 3-0 defeat at Sunderland. Robert Matthews replaced him for the next game and scored twice which resulted in Shone having to wait a while to get another chance.
Given a run of 11 consecutive games in the middle of the season, he scored his debut goal in a 1-1 draw versus Everton at Goodison Park and grabbed a hat-trick in 36 minutes against Middlesbrough. Despite making only three appearances from January to May, he had still made a useful contribution to Liverpool's 1922 First Division championship success.
But when the title was retained a year later with one of the most-settled teams in Liverpool's history, Shone was very much an onlooker and only played once for the first-team all season.
The 1924-25 campaign was easily Shone's best year at Anfield; he played in every one of the 46 league and cup matches and scored 15 times. However, champions Liverpool had finished a disappointing 12th. Shone was only picked three times the next season and after playing solely for the reserves for two seasons he agreed a move to London to resurrect his professional career.
He played 12 out of West Ham's 13 games at the start of the season, but then drifted out of the Hammers' side, which finished 17th in the first division. He moved to third division Coventry in January 1929, playing nine games before retiring in 1930.
Shone also had the distinction of scoring Liverpool's 1,500th goal. Danny died in Preston in 1974, aged 75.
