The death of Tom Bradshaw


February 22, 1986
Tom “Tiny” Bradshaw, who captained many great Liverpool sides in the great football days of the 30s, died aged 82 at Monksland Hospital in his home town of Coatbridge, Lanarkshire.

Bradshaw joined Bury in July 1922 from Lanarkshire junior football and gained his only international cap for Scotland when they beat England 5-1 at Wembley on March 31, 1928.

In January, 1930, Bradshaw was transferred to Liverpool for a then huge fee of £8,000 and for eight years his 6ft. 2in. frame dominated the Anfield defence.

Tiny returned to Scotland in 1938 and played for a short spell with Third Lanark before returning to Liverpool to end his playing career with South Liverpool in 1939.
