BREAKING NEWS: Former Liverpool goalkeeper dead

Former Liverpool goalkeeper Tommy Lawrence has died, according to a confirmation by the Kops.

The 77-year-old Scotsman was Bill Shankly’s first-choice keeper during the 1960s. He only missed four league matches in six seasons as Liverpool won the First Division Championship twice and claimed the FA Cup for the first time.

“Liverpool Football Club is deeply saddened by the passing of former goalkeeper Tommy Lawrence, aged 77.” a Liverpool statement reads
The Scottish stopper, affectionately nicknamed ‘The Flying Pig’ due to his ability to make spectacular saves despite his size, was a key member of Bill Shankly’s first great Reds side in the early 1960s.

While it was his more attack-minded teammates who often took the limelight as the club laid foundations for a spate of success, Lawrence’s skillset – one more akin to modern ‘keepers – provided a formidable final line of defence for almost a decade.

Tommy joined Liverpool as an apprentice and had to be patient before an opportunity arose, though he wasted no time once it did.

His debut came in October 1962, a 1-0 defeat at West Bromwich Albion, and it was a rare occasion when Lawrence wasn’t between the posts during the eight years that followed.
