Liverpool-born Cyril scored on his League debut for Liverpool as an 18 year old forward, netting the only goal of the game when Chelsea were the visitors to Anfield on 2nd September 1939.


But the outbreak of the Second World War meant that this was the final competitive fixture for several years, the regular divisions being abandoned in favour of regional leagues and cup competitions.


When League football resumed after the war ended, Cyril made an important contribution by scoring 10 times from 17 appearances (including‚hat-tricks against Huddersfield & Grimsby) as the‚Reds marched on to the First Division championship.


He was in and out of the team over the next five years and missed out completely on the F.A. cup run which took the club to their first Wembley final in 1950. Cyril moved to Tranmere Rovers in May 1952 and scored nearly 100 League goals for them and Port Vale, the club at which he ended his playing career.
