LFChistory.net launched billyliddell.com on 10th of January 2009, when Billy would have celebrated his 87th birthday. LFChistory.net has been in good contact with Rena Liddell, Billy's only sister, since February 2008 and received priceless photos and press cuttings from Billy's life and times. Along with a collection of quotes and articles we hope this website will do King Billy justice.
Billy's autobiography - "My Soccer Story" (1960) and the following people have been invaluable in helping us put together this website:

"I saw him play many times. And I met him. I was there the day we were relegated to the second division. We lost to Cardiff City. We won a penalty which Billy took and it was saved by their substitute goalie, their full back. In those days there were no official substitutes allowed on the bench, so if the goalie was injured one of the original 11 had to take over. Not only was it a very expensive save for us but Billy rarely missed penalties. He must have been one of the most successful penalty takers of all time for LFC and Scotland. And that was when the ball was heavy leather with big stitches weighing a lot more than it does now."
