Tom Fleetwood (born 1888) was a footballer who played in the Football League for Everton, Rochdale and Oldham Athletic.


Fleetwood signed for Everton in 1911 and had a good career playing in a number of positions, he was mainly "A Centre Half as hard as nails" this statement was on a caricature that our family own and his nickname was "THE WAR HORSE" with a name like that I can only picture a solid dependable, workmanlike figure who was pretty no nonsense figure.

He won the old English First Division Football League with his beloved Everton in the 1914-15 season. Fleetwood later in his career signed for Oldham Athletic but returned to Everton as a scout then had the honour of becoming Chief Scout and had a large influence in the signing/scouting of The legendary 'DIXIE DEAN' & 'TOMMY LAWTON.
