Biography:
"A wing-half who mixes defence and attack cleverly", Billy Truesdale was a contemporary of Jimmy McIlroy and Billy Bingham at Co-Op Rec, then Glentoran's "thirds". He graduated to the Seconds but, unlike his illustrious colleagues, could progress no further at The Oval and instead moved to Bangor. It was while with the Seasiders that Truesdale won a single amateur cap.
