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:

"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!
