William Shankly OBE - A Short History

Bill Shankly was born 100 years ago on 2 September 1913. He was a right half who was capped twelve times for Scotland, but he is best remembered as manager of Liverpool. Shankly took charge when Liverpool was in the Second Division and rebuilt the team into a major force in English football. He led them to the Second Division Championship to gain promotion to the top-flight First Division in 1962, before going on to win three First Division Championships, two FA Cups, four Charity Shields and one UEFA Cup.

Shankly announced his surprise retirement from football a few weeks after Liverpool won the 1974 FA Cup Final, having managed the club for fifteen years, and was succeeded by his long-time assistant Bob Paisley. He died seven years later at the age of 68 on 29 September 1981.
