Description

Gateshead born wing half Tommy Lamph joined Second Division Leeds City from Spennymoor United in 1913, making his Football League debut at Grimsby Town in April 1914. The following season he only managed 2 further appearances before peacetime football was suspended due to World War One, and on resumption he was back at Elland Road, playing all 8 games and scoring once in the autumn of 1919 before Leeds City went bankrupt and resigned from the Football League. He was sold in the bankruptcy auction to Manchester City for £800 in October 1919 but his time at Maine Road was brief, he lost his place after Boxing Day and after 11 appearances was transferred to Derby County in March 1920, making 10 appearances as Derby narrowly avoided relegation. The following season saw him play only 7 further games for Derby before he was transferred back to Elland Road, this time joining Leeds United, for whom he played 6 games in the Spring of 1921, becoming only one of 2 players to have appeared for both clubs (the other being the footballer and football journalist Ivan Sharpe), but thereafter never played another League match due to ill health, being forced to retire the following year from football, and he died in February 1926 aged only 32.
