This game came right at the end of Billy's career. He only went on to make 6 further appearances after this Huddersfield game on 19th March 1960. Liddell's kick burst the ball after only four minutes of play. He made a goal for Dave Hickson after 13 minutes. Tommy Leishman added another only three minutes later. Liverpool were 2-0 up, but allowed Huddersfield to equalize 2-2. Liddell could have scored Liverpool's third from the spot, but his thunderous shot rebounded off the upright and the ball ended up in the middle of field. Such was the power of Liddell's kick!
"Being a resident of Townhill I am being pretty vocal about this btw, Billy Liddell single-handedly saved LIVERPOOL FC from obscurity, if it wasn't for Billy Liddell then LFC wouldn't be where they are today, NO Bill Shankly, NO Sir Bob Paisley, NO 5 European cup wins, NO 18 league titles, this man was our saving grace during the 50's, do me a favour and get this petition signed, this one time Anfield legend deserves a statue in his home town, come on people of RAWK, sign it and lets get this TRUE Anfield legend the honour he deserves."
