This game came right at the end of Billy's career. He only went on to make 6 further appearances after this Huddersfield game on 19th March 1960. Liddell's kick burst the ball after only four minutes of play. He made a goal for Dave Hickson after 13 minutes. Tommy Leishman added another only three minutes later. Liverpool were 2-0 up, but allowed Huddersfield to equalize 2-2. Liddell could have scored Liverpool's third from the spot, but his thunderous shot rebounded off the upright and the ball ended up in the middle of field. Such was the power of Liddell's kick!

King Billy quote

"My old man is a blue nose and he used to alternate between watching Everton one week and Liverpool the next, just to watch Liddell play. As someone who has seen him play many times and has also seen all our greats over the last 50 years he tells me without doubt Liddell is the best player he has ever seen in a red shirt."
