Goalkeeper Kenneth Campbell became Liverpool's first line of defence when Sam Hardy moved to Villa Park in 1912. He missed only one First Division match during the 1912-13 season, but the man who replaced him*on that occasion (the young Elisha Scott) would subsequently ensure that Ken's spell at Anfield was relatively brief, Scottish international though he was.


Ken only missed 4 League games in 1913-14 but before the half-way point of the following season, Scott had taken over between the posts.


When the First World War ended and League football resumed, Ken did find himself first-choice again but in April 1920 he played the last of his 125 League games for Liverpool and returned briefly to his native Scotland.*He later*moved South again to play for three other English clubs before retiring as a player.
