Dewsbury born Fred Hopkin was an ever present member of the Liverpool side which clinched the First Division title in the 1922/23 season – their second in as many seasons.
He had moved to Anfield in 1921, after two seasons with local rivals Manchester United, and scored his debut goal against Bolton in a 3 – 0 win on 3rd March 1923.
Hopkin would also be a firm favourite the following season, missing just two of the 42 league games that season.
He made 360 appearances for Liverpool, before re-joining his first club Darlington for a second spell in 1931.
He died in Darlington in 1970, at the age of 74.
