Phil Taylor: Oldest surviving England football international

Phil Taylor, who was England's oldest surviving international footballer at the age of 95, was a central figure in Liverpool's history throughout the middle years of the last century. As a stylishly creative wing-half he excelled as the Anfield Reds won the first post-war League championship, in 1946-47, and he captained the side in the FA Cup final of 1950. As the club's manager, though, he was less successful, driving himself to distraction as the Merseysiders narrowly missed out on promotion to the top flight in three successive seasons before he resigned in late 1959 to make way for Bill Shankly, the man who built the modern Liverpool.
