Eddie Spicer was born in Garston, Liverpool on the 20th September 1922. A great footballer, he later captained Liverpool schoolboys and in 1939 he signed for Liverpool Football Club.
But he wasn't to make his club debut for another seven years. At the outbreak of the Second World War he joined the Royal Marines and later became an officer.
After the war, on the 30th January 1946, he finally made his debut for Liverpool FC. A tough tackling defender, he played over 168 games for the club. In 1953, Eddie Spicer suffered a terrible injury on the field - his leg was fractured in 19 places. His football career over, he was lucky to be able to walk again.
The club and its supporters provided a very generous testimonial game for Eddie Spicer who was very popular at Anfield. He went on to run a pub in North Wales and write for the local Daily Post.
Eddie Spicer, gallant gentleman, passed away on Christmas Day 2004.
During his wartime service, Eddie Spicer had one very strange encounter. As fighting raged in Normandy in 1944, a German soldier approached Eddie Spicer and surrendered. In perfect English, the German soldier said-

"Don't shoot, I'm a soccer international."

The German soldier went on to say that that he had played against several English sides including the Aston Villa team that had toured Germany in the late 1930s. The German soldier had even corresponded for a time with one of the Aston Villa players, Ernie Callaghan.
Eddie Spicer saw to it that the German soldier was given medical treatment and they parted 'the best of friends.'

The Liverpool FC team 1947-1948 - Eddie Spicer is on the back row, far right ( Bob Paisley is at the opposite end ! ) and A Stubbins with the ball

It's obviously my age, but I'm struggling with the orientation of this fascinating photo...…..now if somebody would identify the bridges over canal in the bottom right hand corner & the one above also, then I'm sure "my little grey cells" (acknowledgements to Hercule Poirot here) will be able to process the rest.

Thanks in advance.

It's Linacre lane/Hawthorne Road Junction, Paul. Circle cabs is bottom left opposite the Vactite on one side and the Harland and wolf social club would be built on the Bootle baseball ground. Vernons is diagonal to Circle cabs.
