One of the finest goalkeepers to have defended Liverpool's colours in the club's history, Tommy Lawrence was a player considerably ahead of his time and highly appreciated by Bill Shankly.
The Scot signed with the Anfield outfit in 1957 but was forced to wait five years for his Reds debut, eventually capitalising on an injury to Jim Furnell. Lawrence, and Shankly, would never look back.
Tommy retained the gloves for the remainder of the 1962-63 season and would miss just four league matches in the six campaigns that followed - two of which saw the Reds crowned champions of England.
Although he lacked height and agility, the stopper was reliable, brave, adept at reading dangerous situations and capable of distributing passes with good accuracy.
In a move which would seem obvious to modern eyes but which revolutionised how goalkeepers performed in the 1960s, Shankly encouraged Lawrence to push forward to the edge of his 18-yard box and sweep behind his defence.
It worked; the Reds defence was regularly mean and conceded a mere 34 goals in 42 fixtures en route to lifting the 1965-66 championship, with Lawrence among five players to start every game.
The 'keeper stayed between the Liverpool posts until February 1970, when Shankly promoted Ray Clemence to No.1 - Lawrence had already kept his younger teammate at bay for more than two years.
Tommy made his 390th and final Liverpool appearance in a 2-2 league draw with Manchester City in April 1971 before leaving the club seven months later to join Tranmere Rovers.
