Tommy Lucas played in Liverpool's defence for nearly a decade and a half between the two World Wars and although he had spells when he was out of the side, his individual league appearance record for the club can only be bettered by a select couple of dozen men who have worn the famous red shirt over the years.
As the Football League returned to being a national competition in 1919, Tommy made 16 appearances in one or other of the full-back positions.
There was fierce competition for shirt number 2 and 3 at that time and even though he played on 27 occasions for the 1921-22 championship-winning side, he was only called on once the next season.
He would, however, bounce back to make nearly 200 appearances in league and cup over the next 5 years.
1928-29 was another season when he was selected only occasionally but again with determination he forced himself back into the first-team picture and was one of two 'ever-presents', the other being Archie McPherson, during the 1930-31 league campaign.
But now approaching his mid-30's he could no longer be sure of his place and the last of his 341 Football League appearances for Liverpool came in a home match against Arsenal on 22 October, 1932.
