Biography


The full-back come midfielder made 135 appearances between 1970 and 1977 for Aberdeen whom he joined from Kirkconnel Amateurs. For the Dons, he scored 23 goals including nine in the Premier Division, the last of which was against Dundee United in the Pittodrie men's 3-2 home victory in October 1976.

However, after winning a League Cup Winners medal with the Dons that season, he was transferred to Dundee United for a £14,000 fee in February 1977. However, his stay across the road, if not the city, was to be short-lived.

He played just 7 plus 4 as substitute games all in the Premier Division and within the first week of the 1977-87 campaign, he was involved in the exchange deal which took midfielder Bobby Robinson to Tannadice and brought Billy to Dens Park.

In his first season at Dens he scored no less than 17 goals, almost double his tally in any other single season. However, it wasn't enough to get Dundee promotion as they missed out on promotion on the last day of the season!

The following season, Dundee did win the title, though Williamson wasn't quite as much a regular as he had been in the previous campaign, accounting for him only scoring four times. Back in the Premier Division, he figured in only eight games, but was in the side that lost to Dundee United in the League Cup Final at Dens the following season.

Though he played in more than half the games as Dundee returned to the Premier Division as runners- up to Hibernian, manager Donald Mackay released him in May, 1981 and he emigrated to Australia.
