Between 2009-2011 he was at Northampton Town where he scored 13 goals in 74 appearances. Billy was first signed from Northampton Town on July 2011. He spent three and a half seasons at the Caledonian Stadium and earned the fans chant "He scores when he wants" after scoring regularly. He left in January 2015 having scored 54 goals in 124 appearances and he signed for Wigan Athletic making just 10 appearances without scoring. Having then made 29 appearances for Dundee United scoring 12 times in 2015-2016 he was loaned out to Oldham Athletic where he made 23 appearances scoring 4 times. His second coming was as a loan player in January 2017 scoring 4 in 15 games. He blotted his copybook with Inverness fans in 2017-2021 by joining Ross County where he made 102 appearances scoring 32 goals. Up to the start of season 2021-2022 he had scored 65 goals in 157 appearances. However he has redeemed himself and signed on again at Inverness for season 21-22.

The countdown is now on since he scored his 93rd goal against Morton in Jan 2023.

On the International scene, Billy has made 11 appearances for Northern Ireland but has yet to score for the national team.
