Biography

Billy was signed from Blairgowrie in September 1974 by Albert Henderson, having impressed in a reserve game against Dundee two days prior, with the centre back also having played two trial games for Brechin City. He would go on to spend six and a half years with the club, but a lot of his time at Gayfield was blighted by injury. He featured most between 1977 and 1980, although he spent the first half of the 1979-80 campaign injured. He only managed one competitive appearance during the first half of the following season and in late January 1980 he left the club by mutual consent.
