The Billy Liddell Memorial Group

Click on the image to look at the Memorial siteBillyliddell.com is proud to highlight the work of The Billy Liddell Memorial Group.

Originally the aim of the group was twofold. Firstly to have a lasting memorial to Billy erected in his home village of Townhill. Secondly, to have Billy’s name added to the Scottish Football Association’s Hall of Fame. 

On 16th November, 2008 the Scottish Football Association inducted Billy Liddell into SFA Hall of Fame.

The SFA responded to thousands of emails from Reds all over the world. The Liddell family were represented at the event by Billy's son Malcolm. Chairman of the Billy Liddell Memorial Group, Councillor Bill McCulloch said: "He was extremely happy that the SFA had seen fit to add the name of Billy Liddell to the Hall of Fame and I thank everyone who helped make this possible. However, we still have more work to do and more objectives to complete, so our work continues."

Billy Liddell Memorial Group finally reached its goal when the memorial cairn was unveiled on 22nd of May 2010 in Townhill. Click here for photos from this tremendous event.

King Billy quote

"I played my 400th Football League game for Liverpool, against Bury at Anfield, and three weeks later was carried off on a stretcher for the first time in my life. This was when we were playing Doncaster Rovers and I went up for a high ball at the same time as Jim Kilkenny, the Rovers' left-half. Our heads met with a terrific bump and we both fell to the ground like logs. I was unconscious, so that it was only later that I knew Kilkenny had also been taken off. Neither of us resumed, and apparently Jim had come off worst; at any rate he had to have six stitches in his wound, whereas three sufficed for mine."

Even though Billy Liddell seemed invincible, he was once knocked unconscious during a game
