Phil Taylor is mainly known as the only Liverpool boss never to manage the club in the 1st division.
Taylor had been connected with Liverpool Football Club for over 20 years when he was asked to succeed Don Welsh at the end of the 1955-56 season.
Born in Bristol, he had been a schoolboy international for England before playing for one of his home-town clubs (Rovers) as first an amateur and later a professional.
He was signed by Liverpool in March 1936 for £5,000, which was not an insignificant sum for an 18 year old at the time.
