Beautiful Billy Liddell hand painted figure

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

King Billy quote

"His typical move was on the left wing, where he would make for the bye-line before slinging in a fast cross at just the right height. The all-standing Kop would topple forward when he made for the flagpole and you could hear the shout for a "corner" all over the city. His corners were also superb as were his free kicks. He would also cut in from the left and let fly with thunderous shots from either foot.

Sometimes he would switch to the right wing and had an extended period there. But one of his most successful spells was when he was converted to centre forward. He held the line, passed and brought in the wingers, was direct down the middle and could also head the ball. He ran (and walked) with a rolling gait - like a sailor. He could not be knocked off the ball and was rarely injured.

Billy Liddell, we salute you. You were a true legend. You were my first footballing hero. Arguably you were the best of all because you were ours alone. A true Local Hero."
