Like Ahmed Salah, Billy Chadwick has been with Hull City since the age of 11. Chadwick is a 21 year-old striker born and raised in Hull. He made his senior first team debut for the Tigers in an EFL Cup match against Leeds United last September which Hull won on penalties after a 1-1 draw.
In the 2019-20 season he was at Gainsborough Trinity in the English seventh tier on loan. At the time he was a box-to-box midfielder and impressed in his stint there, making 27 appearances.
He went on loan again last December for a one-month loan with FC Halifax Town. His debut was against Hartlepool United and he scored in a 3-3 draw before converting a penalty to put Halifax through 4-2 on penalties. He scored three goals in five appearances and was named in the Team of the Month before being recalled by Hull City. It was during this loan that he was converted into a striker.
In March, Billy went back out on loan, again to FC Halifax Town, for the remainder of the season under Pete Wild in the National League, scoring twice in thirteen matches, whilst making a greater overall impact.
He is contracted at Hull City until next summer.
Speaking to Linfieldfc.com ahead of the loan move, Billy stated: "Delighted to be here. Really looking forward to getting going and help the team as much as I can. I’m looking forward to the challenge and hopefully scoring as many goals as possible."
