RCL Sporting Ceramic Icons have launched their latest sporting figure which is of the one and only Billy Liddell. This limited edition fine bone china figure stands ten inches high, is hand painted, the base has a marble effect finish, and the scroll is printed with Billy's statistics for Liverpool.
RCL Sporting Ceramic Icons produce fine bone china figures in the finest traditions of the old Royal Worcester works. These are top quality products, hand painted and signed by famous ex-Royal Worcester artists.
Phyllis Liddell, Billy's widow, was presented in March 2009 with Billy's wonderful statuette

"When I came down to Liverpool from Scotland as a youngster I had a job lined up for me. My parents insisted I had something to fall back on if my soccer career fell through. They thought football was too risky. I was good with numbers so I joined an accounting firm in Liverpool. I made sure I was allowed to keep my job once I broke into the first team. I think I was the only one who did. I would train pre-season and then only twice a week when the season started. The rest of the time I worked."
Liverpool's greatest player was only a part-timer!
