    Billy was a funny bloke, complete lunatic but a good laugh, lives in Llanharan now, seen him down the city a few times when the new stadium opened.

    Sorry to the bearer of bad news but I think Billy passed away a few years ago.

    EDIT: Wait a sec, we've had this on here before where I said he'd passed away but thinking about it now I might possibly be getting my facts wrong. I thought I'd heard he passed away but I have nothing to back that up so I'm going to retract it and apologise for any misinformation I might have put out there.

    Proper Journeyman Al. Dont think he turned many fights down, if any.

    I just edited my last post, we have actually had this same discussion on here before about Billy.

    My edit says: Wait a sec, we've had this on here before where I said he'd passed away but thinking about it now I might possibly be getting my facts wrong. I thought I'd heard he passed away but I have nothing to back that up so I'm going to retract it and apologise for any misinformation I might have put out there.

    Yes, cant remember who he played for but I think it was in the Combination League, although Bonvilston seems to spring to mind for some reason

    Would be very early 80s I remember playing against him.
