Thomas Green (born 12 May 1913) was an English footballer who played as an inside forward. Green was born in Droitwich, Worcestershire. His father, also named Tommy Green, had a career as a footballer and had also played for West Bromwich Albion. Green Jr attended St Peter's School in Worcester before playing for Droitwich Town, Droitwich Spa and Droitwich Comrades. He signed for West Bromwich Albion as an amateur in October 1931 and turned professional in March 1932. Green made his debut against Leeds United in February 1934 and went on to score five goals in 16 appearances. He transferred to West Ham United in December 1936, for a £3,000 fee, scoring six goals in 44 first-team appearances for the East London club. In March 1939 he returned to the Midlands in order to join Coventry City. After scoring twice in nine games for Coventry, he moved to Worcester City in 1941, before finishing his playing career at Bromyard F.C (1945–1949). He managed Bromyard Sports from 1949 to 1951. Green died in Bromyard on 5 February 1997.[1]
