Tom Bromilow appointed Burnley F.C. manager


October 5, 1932
Tom Bromilow, the former Liverpool and England left half back, has been appointed secretary-manager to Burnley Football Club, in succession to Mr. A. Pickles, who retired a month ago.

Liverpool discovered Bromilow while he was playing in Army football, and, curiously, his debut in the 1919-20 season was against Burnley at Turf Moor.

He gained international honours against Wales in 1921 and 1922, Scotland in 1922, and Ireland in 1926, and he was a member of the Liverpool teams which won the league championship in 1921-22 and the following season. He left the Anfield Road club in 1930, and has since acted as a coach to an Amsterdam football team.
