Profile

Harry 'Smiler' Chambers sent fear into the opposition with his ferocious left foot shot, and averaged a goal every two games.

Chambers topped the Liverpool goal charts in the first five post-World War One seasons, and played a pivotal role in the Reds winning two consecutive championships in 1922 and 1923.

Harry joined Liverpool at the end of the First World War and was a key member of the team that won the First Division championship in successive seasons during the early 20's, scoring 41 times from 72 matches during those two successful years, 1921-22 & 1922-23. Harry continued to score with regularity and was the club's only ever-present during the 1925-26 & 1926-27 league seasons.

His scoring exploits with Liverpool took his career total for the club past the 150 mark before he was transferred to West Bromwich Albion in March 1928.

After retiring from the game he continued to play the game he loved for Shropshire team Oakengates until he was 52. He died in 1949.

Other Clubs:
Willington United Methodists, North Shields Athletic (both amateur); Belfast Distillery & Glentoran (wartime guest); WBA, Oakengates Town, Hereford United
