Tavistock, Devon born wing half Billy Fellowes joined hometown club Tavistock Town in 1926 from where he signed for Plymouth Argyle in July 1927, making his Football League debut at Norwich City in April 1930, but he was restricted to 5 appearances in two small bursts. He left for Clapton Orient in July 1933, where he played 87 times and scored his debut League goal, followed by a move the short distance north to Luton Town in May 1935, where he clocked up 124 appearances in a three year spell, scoring 3 goals, before returning to the South West with Exeter City in June 1938.
He played both sides of the Second World War in an eight year association with City, during which he played 62 times, and he did add a further five appearances to his Plymouth Argyle total in 1939-40 – almost a decade after his first – in the War League whilst still registered as a League player with The Grecians. Leaving St James’ Park in 1947 after 14 League appearances in 1946-47, he completed his career back where it had all began, with Tavistock Town.
