  Update 08.12.2006


  Although left back Brian Kettle only played four games in a Reds first team jersey he was something of a legend in the Reserve team.

  A player who loved to join the attack, England youth international Kettle was a much respected figure at Anfield and featured in the hugely successful Liverpool reserve team for seven years which won the reserve championship on numerous occasions.

  Indeed a fact that not many people know is remember the classic European game against St Etienne in 1977 at Anfield. We all know what happened when David Fairclough came on to score the sensational winner, but manager Bob Paisley had intended to bring Kettle on instead. A quick change of mind by Mr Paisley and the rest as they say is history.

  The competition for the left back slot was fierce at the time with Joey Jones, Alec Lindsay and later Alan Kennedy to contend with so Kettle left his beloved Liverpool in 1980 for Wigan Athletic.

  He later ventured into management on the non-league scene and achieved great success, managing South Liverpool, Southport, Stalybridge Celtic and Rhyl in the Welsh league.
