High Spen, County Durham born left half Bill Pigg began his football career with Chopwell Institute prior to the First World War, and after the War he played for Hamsterley Juniors in 1918 and Spen Black & White in 1919, from where he was signed by Third Division (North) club Ashington in October 1921, making his Football League debut at Crewe Alexandra the same month, immediately establishing himself as a first team regular. Pigg missed only two matches in their 1923-24 campaign but after three seasons at Portland Park, he joined Queen’s Park Rangers in July 1924 having scored once in 104 appearances for The Colliers.

Pigg had two seasons at Loftus Road but made only 25 appearances for Rangers, before returning north to join Carlisle United in June 1926, but for whatever reason he had to wait two years to make his debut for The Cumbrians which came at the start of the 1928-29 season, when he missed only 3 matches. He missed the first month of the following season but played most of their matches thereafter, but left Brunton Park to join Accrington Stanley in June 1930 after 7 goals in 68 appearances. He played a final season for Stanley making 12 appearances before retiring in 1931.
