Louis Bimpson Death – Louis Bimpson, an English footballer who played as a striker for Liverpool during the 1950s has passed away on Monday, November 15, 2021, at the age of 92. Bimpson is understood to have been the club’s oldest former player before his death was on Monday by his former club Liverpool FC. He made his debut two months later on 7 March in a league match at Villa Park, it was a day not to remember, however, as Aston Villa cruised to a convincing 4–0 victory over a struggling Reds side.

Bimpson was born Rainford, Lancashire (now in Merseyside) in May 1929, Bimpson played for Burscough before Liverpool signed him in 1953. The attacker who could play on the right and down the center moved to Liverpool from the non-league side Burscough. He went on to score 39 goals in 102 appearances and was the top scorer for the club in the 1953/54 season in which the Reds were relegated from the top flight. after he left Liverpool, Bimpson went on to play in an FA Cup final for Blackburn Rovers and later featured for Bournemouth, Rochdale and Wigan before ending his career back at Burscough.

Bimpson is probably best remembered for his time at Ewood Park, especially his first season as he scored in a 4–1 victory over Sunderland in the 1959–60 FA Cup third-round replay and followed that with a brace in an impressive 3–1 win at Tottenham Hotspur in round five. The club made a statement following Bimpson’s death saying: “Liverpool FC is deeply saddened by the passing of former player Louis Bimpson. The thoughts of everyone at Liverpool FC are with Louis’ family and friends at this time.”
