Scottish-international Tommy Younger was Liverpool's goalkeeper in the latter part of the 1950's, after joining from Hibernian where he had achieved tremendous success.
He won the Scottish League with Hibs two years running in 1951 and 1952, was picked for the Scottish League three times and played eight internationals. He did his national service in Germany where he was a P.E. Instructor and had to fly back every weekend to play for Hibs.
Younger went straight into Liverpool's first-team, replacing Doug Rudham and Dave Underwood, who had shared the goalkeeping duties during the previous season.
Tommy played in all but two of the league matches that first season (1956-57) and missed only another four during the next two seasons.
Younger added 16 internationals to his name while at Liverpool and captained Scotland's 1958 World Cup squad.
Younger once played up front for Liverpool against Derby on October 19, 1957. He got injured in the match and Ronnie Moran went in goal. When Younger returned to the field of play, Liddell was switched to left-back and Younger went up front!
Younger lost his place to Bert Slater at the start of the 1959-60 season and moved to Falkirk as player-manager.
A back injury led to him ending his career but after finding out that the injury was not as bad as first diagnosed, he returned to England with Stoke. Next stop for Younger was Toronto, Canada, where he played so well that Stanley Matthews recommended him to Don Revie at Second Division Leeds.
Younger played 42 games in 13 months at Leeds and then retired.
He later became a prominent board member at Hibernian and voted the president of the Scottish Football Association, a post which he held until his untimely death on January 13, 1984, only 53 years of age.
