Billy Dennis was an English soccer player in the League of Ireland during the 1920s and 1930s.


Playing career

Dennis played a couple of games as an amateur at Port Vale before moving to Ireland to play for Bohemians.[1]

Dennis was a dynamic inside right during this era in the League of Ireland and was part of the all-conquering Bohemians team of 1927–28 who won every trophy on offer that season.[2] He was Bohs' top scorer that season with 12 goals in 18 league games[3], 26 from 36 appearances in all competitions[4]. Billy scored in that season's FAI Cup Final on St. Patrick's Day as Bohs beat Drumcondra 2-1 at Dalymount Park.

Dennis spent the best part of a decade at Bohemians and won numerous medals.
