     Home | Football | Tommy Eglington

Thomas Joseph Eglington (15 January 1923 18 February 2004) was an Irish footballer who played as an outside-left for, among others, Shamrock Rovers, Everton and Tranmere Rovers. Eglington was also a dual internationalist and played for both Ireland teams - the FAI XI and the IFA XI.

Eglington’s playing career followed a similar path to that of Peter Farrell. As well as teaming up at international level, they also played together at three different clubs. Eglington was best known as a creator of chances, for his acceleration down the wing and for his ability to deliver a precise pass at speed. He also possessed a powerful shot. He remains one of Everton’s all-time top goalscorers and has played more games in the Second Division than any other Everton player.
