William Hood - Introduction

William 'Billy' Hood was born on 3 November 1914 in Belfast, Northern Ireland. He was playing as a defender in the Irish League for Cliftonville when he transferred to Merseyside in March 1937. George Kay was the manager of Liverpool at the time.

William Hood & Liverpool

William Hood made his Liverpool debut on 20 November 1937 against Huddersfield Town. Huddersfield came away from Anfield Road with a 0-1 victory. Legendary Manchester United manager Matt Busby was also in the Liverpool team on that day. Hood only appeared in three matches during his Anfield career. His last appearance for Liverpool was on 4 December 1937 against Derby County. Yet again it was a home defeat for Hood and Liverpool as County won by the odd goal in seven. At the end of the season William Hood left Liverpool and returned across the Irish Sea to play for Derry City.
