John Welsh. : Midfield 2003-2005

Date of Birth: 10th January 1984
Birthplace: Liverpool
1st team games: 10
1st team goals: 0

England Under-21 international John Welsh completed a move to Hull City on the first day of 2006 in a swap deal that saw winger Paul Anderson arrive at Liverpool.
A boyhood Liverpudlian who hails from Childwall, Welsh came through the Academy having joined Liverpool at the age of 10.

Welsh made his first team debut as a second half replacement for Vladimir Smicer in a Worthington Cup fourth round tie at home to Ipswich in 2003. He then made his Premiership debut for the Reds as a substitute in the 2-1 Anfield defeat by Arsenal but made just one more appearance for the first team in 2003/04, despite previous manager Gerard Houllier insisting he would play at least 15 games.

A former captain of the Liverpool Reserve team Welsh made seven appearances in the 2004/05 season under the management of Rafael Benitez before he made the move to Hull after an initial successful loan spell.
