Stephen Pickup – “great guy Billy Morris, lived up the road from me and I was a friend of his son Gareth. They moved when I was 6/7 to Wrexham or Llandudno.”

“did he manage or coach at Wrexham for a while? I remember going to visit them in Llandudno once, I am not sure but think they may have had a B&B there. Extract from ‘Clarets Collection ‘ by Ray Simpson which confirms this” .

Gwyn Hughes- “Llandudno , he often was a spectator for my games involving the local team by coincidence we were managed by Gordon Hurst a rival from that FA Cup final team of Charlton Athletic eventual winners 0-1 .

Tony Parker- “Billy was a close friend of the family. He eventually lived in Colwyn Bay high above Eirias Park where we visited him whenever we were in the area. Even his house was named Brun Lea (the original ‘Burnley’).He played for Burnley before and after the war despite the 6 year gap and was a Welsh International. He and his wife Meg loved Burnley” .

David Binns- “another one for your collection – Billy Morris is front front row second from the left” .
