Henry Welfare made four First Division appearances for Liverpool during the 1912-13 season. He made his debut for the club in a home fixture with Sheffield Wednesday on February 15, 1913 and scored his only goal, also at Anfield, when Derby County were the visitors two weeks later. He played in the next match at Tottenham, but only figured once more in the first-team, when Liverpool lost at home to Manchester United on March 29, 1913.
After leaving Liverpool, Welfare got a job as an English teacher in Rio de Janeiro. He got a trial at Fluminense where he had an immensely successful career, winning the Brazilian title three years running and scoring no less than 163 goals in 166 games! He passed away in Angra dos Reis, Brazil on September 1, 1966.
