In his short time with the Villa Billy contributed to the 1894-95 FA Cup win and the 1895-96 League Championship victory.

Billy scored twice in the 7-1 demolition of Newcastle United in the 2nd Round at Wellington Road helping set Villa on the road to the 1894-95 FA Cup final hosted at Crystal Palace, London where Villa once again beat West Bromwich Albion, this time 1-0.
