Liddell playing for Scotland vs. England on 18th April 1953

King Billy quote

"When the ball came out of the crowd the referees attention was drawn to some defect in the ball. Seemingly Billy had burst the ball with his head, so the ref had to call for a new ball. I know I have written many things over the years watching football, but never have I seen a ball burst with the power of a header. Liddell was known for bursting balls with both his right and left feet, but with his head? I guess that's just another bit of footballing history from Liddell, that will eventually have people in the future doubting the power of this man."

From Liverpool Echo's match report on Liverpool – Fulham on 18th September 1954
