Sheldon was a winger who joined Liverpool from Manchester United in the November of the 1913-14 season.
He missed just three league fixtures in what proved to be an impressive debut season, also featuring in all eight of the FA cup ties which saw Liverpool reach their first major final.
But there was great disappointment for all concerned at the club after the single-goal defeat by Lancashire rivals Burnley at the old Crystal Palace ground.In the 1914-15 season, the last full league season for four years, only Jimmy Nicholl made more appearances and only Frederick Pagnam and Tom Miller scored more goals than Sheldon.
World War I would interrupt his Anfield career, with his last appearance for the club coming against Derby County on April 16, 1921. He retired through injury. Other clubs:Nuneaton (amateur), Manchester United
