Workington, Cumbria born right back Billy Troughear began his football career with Workington Marsh Mission in 1907 before joining hometown professional club Workington in 1908, then in the Lancashire Combination. Spotted by First Division Sunderland, he joined the Wearsiders in 1909, making his Football League debut at Blackburn Rovers the same November and soon establishing himself as their first choice right back, making 29 appearances in his debut season.

In his second season, Sunderland finished third in the League Championship, but he lost his place in the side to Charlie Gladwin after he was signed from Blackpool in October 1912 and played only 6 times during Sunderland’s 1912-13 League Championship winning season. Having not played at all during the 1913-14 season, after 108 appearances for Sunderland, at the end of that season Troughear was released and joined Second Division Leicester Fosse, making 16 appearances for The Fossils before the outbreak of the First World War forced the abandonment of peacetime football. After the War he joined non league Flimby Rangers in 1919 and returned to play for Workington in 1922 before his eventual retirement.
