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

"What can you say about him? Liverpool have had some good club players, but I think he is the finest in their history. Look at him today. I used to do a bit of running around, but he does a lot more than I ever did. Matthews is a great entertainer, but for me that Liddell man is “It”. He is one of the greatest club men ever to have played football."

Donald MacKinlay - Former Liverpool captain from the 20's in 1955
