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

"Billy was never afraid to have a crack at goal. So many of his goals were vital ones, equalisers and winners. He never knew he was beaten."

Roger Hunt - Liverpool 1958-1969
