Billy Liddell runs out of tunnel with the club mascot and also Roy Saunders and Doug Rudham in background during the1950s. Ask any Liverpool fan who the greatest player of all time was, and those with any sense of history will say, Billy Liddell. So loved and respected was he the club was known as ‘Liddellpool’ during the 1950s.

His extraordinary standing is made all the more powerful in that he won just the 1946-47 League title and an FA Cup runner’s up medal in 1950. A true gentleman who was never booked, he studied accountancy and rarely had time to train, and yet he was a goal scorer of legendary ability. He notched up 492 appearances and 215 goals and a further 26 wartime games and 18 goals.

Hillsborough campaigner Anne Williams dies after brave cancer battle - Liverpool Local News - News

HILLSBOROUGH campaigner Anne Williams has lost her battle with cancer.

Anne, who lost her son Kevin, 15, in the disaster was a tireless campaigner for justice and had fought unsuccessfully three times to have the discredited inquests quashed.

She had always maintained that Kevin had been alive beyond the 3.15pm cut-off point for evidence. And was thoroughly vindicated by last year’s independent panel report, and subsequent quashing of the “accidental death” verdicts.

She made her last public appearance at the 24th anniversary service at Anfield on Monday, defying doctors advice.
