Tommy Green

Real Name: Thomas Green
Born: 25/11/1893 (Liverpool)

During the immediate post-war period Southport had no more popular player than centre-forward Tommy Green. One incident involving him was vividly recalled over fifty years later by Gordon Hunt, a young schoolboy at the time.

On November 8th, 1919 Green was sent off shortly before the end of the home game with Bury Reserves for an alleged kick at Watmough. So dissatisfied were the crowd with the referee’s decision that many of them remained outside the ground afterwards loudly protesting about his action. Committee member Harry Watchorn advised them to leave but they stood their ground. It was only when Green himself mounted a nearby cab and asked them for his sake to go away quietly and not create any disturbance that after giving him several loud cheers the crowd finally dispersed. At a meeting under F.A auspices on December 4 th Green was fined 40s. and Southport were ordered to pay the referee’s expenses for attending the meeting.

Career: Southport Central, West Ham United, Southport, South Liverpool, Accrington Stanley, Stockport County, Clapton Orient, Heart of Midlothian, Third Llanark
