Along with Ivan Sharpe, Tommy Lamph was one of two players who turned out for both Leeds United and Leeds City in the Football League in peace-time and, with Harry Sherwin, he was the only Leeds United player to have played with Leeds City during the First World War. Lamph began his career with his local club, Pelaw United before joining Spennymoor United. While there he represented the North-East League against the Southern League and also the Central League. He joined Leeds City in May 1914 and, after scoring once in eighty-two games in the War-time fixtures, made eleven appearances and scored one goal in the Football League before the club was wound up. He was one of the players auctioned off at the Metropole Hotel on 12th October 1919, when Manchester City acquired his services for 800. He made his debut for the Sky Blues in a 4-2 win over Sheffield Wednesday at Maine Road on 25th October 1919 but he stayed at Maine Road for only a few months. He played his last game for City on Boxing Day 1919 in a 0-2 defeat by Everton at Goodison Park, having played eleven League games in the First Division, before joining Derby County in March 1920. He made his Derby debut in a 2-0 win over Preston North End at the Baseball Ground on 13th March 1920 and went on to play sixteen League games and one in the F.A. Cup for the Rams before playing his final game for them in a 3-3 home draw with Oldham Athletic on 5th February 1921 and returning to Leeds, to play for United, later that month. Ill health kept him out of prolonged action and he died in Leeds aged thirty-two on 24th February 1926, after retiring from the game in the summer of 1922.
