THE name of Billy Morgan will always be remembered as a player and manager who gave unstinting service to his beloved club Nemo Rangers and also to his native Cork.
“Winning my first county football championship against UCC in 1972 was very special but little did I think that I would end up winning eight Cork Senior football championships during my career,” said Billy.
Kick-outs were always a speciality for Billy especially when he had the electric Bantry player Declan Barron to pull the ball out of the air.
Morgan has been there and done that as far as football is concerned.
In recent years his managerial skills are still very much evident in the manner he has guided UCC and he is now back again among the coaching staff of the Nemo side that won the Cork County championship last season. Billy Morgan’s record and contribution has done football and Cork proud.
Billy Morgan began playing football at the age of 11 with Nemo Rangers and is now in his 64th year with the club.
He captained Cork to win the 1973 All-Ireland football final against Galway.
Billy has won eight Cork Senior football championships and three All-Ireland Senior club medals.
He is rated the greatest goalkeeper that Cork has produced in the last century.
Morgan is the coach of UCC and has led them to three successes of the six Sigerson Cup finals they reached the last success coming in 2019.
