Portrait of Ephraim Longworth

March 17, 1915
Ephraim Longworth, the consistent and resourceful full back, was born at Halliwell, and played for Bolton St Luke’s School team in his early days. After leaving here he joined Chorley Old Road Congretional Club, who were connected with the Bolton Sunday School League, and then returned to the Bolton St. Luke’s team, of of the Lancashire Combination Second Division clubs.

His next move was to Halliwell Rovers, members of the Bolton and District League, and after half a season migrated to Hyde St. Georges’s. On the formation of the Hyde club he became a professional for them, but after a season he returned to Bolton and assisted the Wanderers.

His next move was to Leyton, and in May 1910, he was transferred to his present quarters at Anfield. With the Southern League club he played either at left or right full back, and he was quite a success in each of these positions.

His first appearance in the Liverpool League team was on September 19, 1910, when he played at Bramall Lane, and he has had a consistent run with the premier eleven ever since. He stands 5ft. 8½in. and weighs 11st. 2lbs.
