Biography


Billy joined Aberdeen from his local junior side Kirkconnell Amateurs in 1970, and made over 100 appearances for the Dons. The midfielder scored a hat-trick against Celtic in 1975, and collected a League Cup winners medal in 1976.

After initially turning down a move to United in February 1977, Billy signed for a reported fee of £14,000 two weeks later, and made his debut against Partick Thistle the following week. Used more in defence at Tannadice, he made only 11 first team appearances before being transferred to Dundee in exchange for Bobby Robinson within six months of signing, with Dundee also receiving a nominal cash adjustment.

Billy spent four years at Dens Park, as the club fluctuated between the Premier and First Divisions, and collected a runners-up medal after being defeated by United in the 1980 League Cup final. He then moved to Austrialia where he played for Brisbane Lions and North Star, later moving into coaching.

  • Last Appearance - Motherwell 1 - 1 Dundee United

    We wound up our League programme for season 76-77 with a rearranged match at Fir Park, which was of academic importance. Even victory would not improve upon our 4th position. There was some incentive for United, however, as only a couple of weeks previously we had gone down 4-0 to 'Well on the same ground. Bobby Graham gave Motherwell an interval lead, but Billy Williamson with his only Premier goal for United gave us a share of the points.
