"I never had the pleasure of seeing Billy Liddell play, but had one very happy encounter with him that demonstrated what a considerate and sporting gentleman he was. It was, I believe, in 1965, when I competed in the 100 yards at The British Universities Championships, held in Liverpool and organised by Liverpool University. Billy Liddell was employed both by Liverpool FC, based at Anfield, and by Liverpool University.
I pulled a hamstring in the 100 yards, and was immediately approached by Billy, who asked if it would be helpful if he were to take me to Anfield for treatment. Liverpool FC were in the forefront of investment in medical solutions for their players and, at that time, were (I believe) one of only two UK institutions that had acquired a Faradism Machine. (The machine stimulated blood-flow and hence muscle regeneration by causing muscle contractions). Billy personally took me to Anfield, and his friendly and much-welcomed gesture significantly assisted in my recovery."
