Liverpool Football Legend, Tommy Smith Dies At 74

Liverpool Football Legend, Tommy Smith Dies At 74

Liverpool legend Tommy Smith, one of the key figures in the club’s first golden era, died on Friday at the age of 74.  

Smith’s no-nonsense performances at the heart of Liverpool’s defence
saw him nicknamed the ‘Anfield Iron’ during his 18-year spell on
Merseyside. Making 638 appearances for the Reds between 1960 and 1978,
Smith won a host of medals as the club rose to prominence both
domestically and in Europe.  

Under the management of the great Bill Shankly, Smith helped
Liverpool dominate for two decades. Smith, who captained the club for
three years, was one of the most influential members of the Liverpool
team that won the FA Cup for the first time in 1965.  

Twelve years later, with Bob Paisley at the helm, he would head a
crucial goal as Liverpool won their maiden European Cup by defeating
Borussia Moenchengladbach in the 1977 final in Rome.  In total,
Liverpool-born Smith, who grew up in the shadow of Anfield before
joining the club he supported as a boy, won the English title four
times, the FA Cup twice, the European Cup once and the UEFA Cup twice.  

Speaking to Liverpool’s official website, Smith’s daughter Janette
Simpson said: “Dad died very peacefully in his sleep shortly after
4.30pm today. “He had been growing increasingly frail and suffering from
a variety of ailments over the last three months especially. We are
obviously all devastated.”  

Smith left Liverpool for Swansea, managed by his old Reds team-mate
John Toshack, in 1978, and helped them to promotion from the old Third
Division. He received the MBE for services to football and retired from
playing in 1979.
