Profile
Stats

Albert Geldard became the youngest ever footballer ever to play a league game at 15 years and 156 days old when he made his debut for Bradford Park Avenue in September 1929.

The right-winger was still only an 18-year-old when Everton splashed out £4,000 to secure his services after a disappointing start to the 1932/33 campaign.

He got his Goodison career off to a dream start as he scored in each of his first two appearances for the club.

His first season was capped off magnificently as he laid on the third for Jimmy Dunn in the FA Cup final as the Blues beat Manchester City 3-0.

His pace, control and ability to shoot with either foot endeared him to Evertonians as he went on to score 37 goals in 180 appearances for the Toffees.

But an injury would eventually spell the end of Geldard’s Everton career and he was sold to Bolton Wanderers in July 1938 for a fee of £4,500.
