Hugh Morgan was a skilful, little forward who was on Liverpool’s books for three years right at the end of the 19th century.
He made his debut at Notts County on April 2, 1898, and played in the last four First Division fixtures of that season, scoring twice against Sheffield Wednesday and Aston Villa. He missed just two league fixtures the following season and was the club's joint-leading scorer with Tommy Robertson, 10 goals apiece, as Liverpool finished runners-up, two points behind champions Aston Villa.
He also scored three times in the FA Cup that season. 1899-1900 proved to be his final year at Anfield and he finished his Liverpool career with 19 goals from 68 league and cup appearances.
Morgan joined First Division Blackburn Rovers in June 1900 and as fate would have it made his debut against Liverpool on September, 1, 1900, at Anfield, losing 3-0 to the Reds. Blackburn finished ninth that season while Liverpool took the League championship. Morgan had a successful career at Rovers playing 77 First Division games and scoring 18 goals in three years.
