Northwich, Cheshire born wing half Tom Manley played junior football for Brunner Mond in 1927 and Norley United in 1928 before joining Northwich Victoria in 1929. He joined Second Division Manchester United as an amateur in September 1930 after being discovered by legendary scout Louis Rocca, signing professional in May 1931 and he made his Football League debut on 5th December 1931 against Millwall at Old Trafford. At United he played various outfield positions, from full back to forward, for example scoring scoring 15 goals as United won the Second Division Championship in 1935-36. Although they were relegated the following season they were again promoted in 1938 as Second Division runners up. During his United career, he scored 41 goals in 195 appearances before moving  to Brentford in July 1939, just before the outbreak of the Second World War. During the War, he appeared 23 times for Brentford and several times as a guest player for United. After the Football League resumed, he continued playing for Brentford, and became its captain. His last game for Brentford was on 30th September 1951, having scored 7 times in 125 appearances for The Bees, a figure that would have been far higher but for the War. He retired from professional football in 1952 and went on to briefly manage hometown club Northwich Victoria in 1954.
