The Club is saddened to learn of the passing of former player Billy Kellock.

Born in Glasgow on 7th February 1954 Billy was brought to New Writtle Street in October 1974 by Sid Prosser having already been on the books of Football League clubs Cardiff City, Norwich City and Millwall. He made his debut, scoring after only six minutes, in a 3-0 Eastern Floodlight Competition win at Bexley United. 

He helped City to a tenth-place finish in the Southern League Premier Division scoring 26 goals in 46 games in all competitions, including a hat trick against Southend United in the Essex Professional Cup. 

By the following season Bill Leivers had replaced Sid Prosser in the New Writtle Street hot seat and City slipped to fourteenth in the table. By the New Year Bobby Kellard was the Manager with a remit to reduce the playing budget and in January City accepted an offer from divisional rivals Kettering Town and Billy was on his way. In 30 appearances that season he scored 15 goals including a four-goal haul in a 6-1 Southern League Cup win against Banbury United, a game in which Billy also missed a penalty.

His goal scoring exploits continued at Kettering and he eventually made a return to the Football League appearing for Peterborough United, Luton Town, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Southend United, Port Vale and Halifax Town.

The Club sends its condolences to Billy’s family and friends at this sad time.
