  • Player profile

    Scottish-born Liddle was a left-winger who could also play left-half and dedicated almost 400 appearances to the City cause in a 14-year spell after moving south of the border from East Fife.

    Liddle notched a decent return of goals too, 92 including league matches and wartime football, making him a crucial part of the city starting eleven for quite some time during the 1930s and 40s.

    He made his name with East Fife, securing international caps for Scotland along the way, and he arrived at Filbert Street as part of the deal which saw Ted Lowery also become a Fox.

    City may have struggled during some First Division years whilst he was at the club but he was twice top-scorer during those tough years. He was reliable and versatile in dedicating his football to Leicester.

    He made over 100 wartime appearances for the club but he also guested for numerous other sides including Northampton, Notts County and Mansfield. His best footballing days were behind him when he left City but he did go on to play for Mansfield Town, Stamford Town and Hinckley Athletic, before eventually calling time on his career at the age of 39.
