Biography

Rising through the youth ranks at Hearts, Billy made his first team debut against Dundee in January 2013. Over the next three years he established himself in the Hearts side, as the club faced financial difficulties and were relegated to the Championship.

Having represented Scotland at under-15, under-16 and under-19 levels, Billy was called up to the under-21 squad in August 2014. He was a member of the Hearts side that won promotion back to the Premiership at the first time of asking, scoring nine goals as Hearts won the Championship in 2014/15. The winger was used mostly as a substitute for the first half of the 2015/16 campaign, and a surprise move in the January transfer window saw Billy join Rangers on loan until the end of the season. Scoring on his debut against Falkirk, his loan period ended with his team again winning promotion.

Another loan spell in July 2016, this time a season long deal with Inverness Caledonian Thistle, saw him regularly playing first team football at the top level in Scotland. With his contract with Hearts coming to an end, he signed a pre-contract agreement to move to United for the 2016/17 season. In his first season at Tannadice, Billy missed just four matches as the club reached the Premiership Play-off, missing out on promotion at the final hurdle.

Timeline

  • Date of Birth

    Billy was born on this date in Edinburgh.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    Rising through the youth ranks at Hearts, Billy made his first team debut against Dundee in January 2013. Over the next three years he established himself in the Hearts side, as the club faced financial difficulties and were relegated to the Championship.

  • United commenced their 2017/18 campaign with a home game in the Betfred Cup against Raith Rovers. The team contained six players making their debuts for United, with four further new players on the bench. Indeed, of the starting eleven only William Edjenguele and Mark Durnan started Dundee United’s previous competitive fixture in Hamilton only seven weeks earlier.

  • United made four changes from the win over Raith Rovers for what was the club’s first ever game against Highland League champions Buckie Thistle. Harry Lewis, Sam Stanton, Patrick N’Koyi and Jamie Robson came into the team, with the first three all making their first starts for United. They replaced Deniz Mehmet, Tam Scobbie, Scott Fraser and Scott Allardice.

  • United managed to avoid becoming the first side to suffer a league defeat to Brechin City this season as they produced a 5-0 victory over their spirited opponents, who despite the scoreline actually caused United no end of trouble, especially in the first half of the game.

  • Last Appearance - Livingston 1 - 1 Dundee United

    United’s season ended in disappointment as a 1-1 draw at the Tony Macaroni Arena was insufficient to overturn the first leg deficit to Livingston. The aggregate defeat consigned United to a third year in the Scottish Championship, and on balance the side from West Lothian fully deserved to go through to the next round to take on Partick Thistle.
