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

"Some chap wrote to the manager pointing out the way Everton's defence moved up to catch the opposition offside at free kicks. We worked on a move in which John Evans hung back, and then came through late to keep onside and it worked perfectly. John found himself all on his own and pulled the ball back for Alan A' Court to score. I had already scored to put us in front, and Alan's effort really finished them off. It was the only time I remember us practicing a set piece move, and we worked at it all week. Manager Don Welsh was so pleased he gave us 10 shillings each!"
