Chapters: Tommy Fleming, Neil Clarke, Thomas Swords, Ralph Caraffi, Jack Kershaw, Tommy Steel, Fred Beardsworth, Chick Albion, Frank Booth, Francis Higgins. Excerpt: Senior club appearances and goalscounted for the domestic league only* Appearances (Goals) Thomas Tommy or "Whitey" Fleming (January 15, 1890 in Beith, Scotland March 19, 1965 in Quincy, Massachusetts) was a Scottish American soccer outside forward who began his career in Scotland and finished it in the United States. During his Hall of Fame career, Fleming won five American Cups, four National Challenge Cups and at least eight league titles. Nickname Whitey due to his white hair, Fleming began his career as an apprentice with Scottish Football League Third Division club Beith F.C. when he was eleven. Three years later, he quit school to devote himself full time to his athletic career. In 1907, Beith F.C. won the Ayrshire Cup, but Fleming was becoming dissatisfied with the club. When it refused to raise his wages or release him from his contract, he decided to move to the United States. In September 1907, Fleming arrived in Quincy, Massachusetts and went to work in the Fore River Shipyard, signing with the company team, Fore River of the New England League. The team won the 1908 league and league cup titles. At some point, Fleming returned to Scotland where he signed with Greenock Morton. In 1913, he left Scotland for good to sign with Bethlehem Steel F.C. of the amateur Allied American Football Association of Philadelphia. His move was again prompted by the issue of money. Bethlehem Steel offered players both $15 per week to play soccer and a position in the steel yard. The first game in which Fleming appears in a Bethlehem line up was a November 17, 1913 victory over Schuylkill Fall. More:
