Tough-tackling wing-half Bill Goldie joined his brother Archie at Anfield towards the end of the 20th Century and the brothers played together in the last four First Division matches of the 1897-98 season and in a further 41 league games before Archie left the club at the end of the 1899-1900 season.
Bill continued to play for Liverpool for another three years and in fact played 129 consecutive games from December 23, 1899, until April 27, 1903. Goldie also picked up a winners' medal as the club won its first League championship title at the end of the 1900-01 season.
Bill was suspended in August 1903 when he became involved in a transfer scam with Portsmouth.
Following his suspension, he joined Fulham in January 1904, having played his last ever game for Liverpool in April 1903, and Bill won two Southern league championships with the Cottagers and featured in the 1907-1908 season which was Fulham‘s first ever League season in Division Two.
This turned out to be his last and after 215 games for Fulham he joined Leicester Fosse which had been promoted to Division One, but was relegated a year later.
Bill retired from a successful League career in 1911 and ran a pub while occasionally turning out for amateurs Leicester Imperial.
His near-impenetrable Scottish accent once forced FA's disciplinary committee to employ an interpreter.
