Billy Stott played right-centre, i.e. number 3, was captain, scored 2-tries, a conversion, and the winning penalty late in the match, and was named man of the match, winning the inaugural Lance Todd Trophy in Wakefield Trinity's 13-12 victory over Wigan in the 1946 Challenge Cup Final during the 1945–46 season at Wembley Stadium, London on Saturday 4 May 1946, in front of a crowd of 54,730.

Billy Stott made his début for Featherstone Rovers on Saturday 29 March 1930, in 1933 he was transferred from Featherstone Rovers to Broughton Rangers for £750 (based on increases in average earnings, this would be approximately £137,700 in 2016), he appears to have scored no drop-goals (or field-goals as they are currently known in Australasia), but prior to the 1974–75 season all goals, whether; conversions, penalties, or drop-goals, scored 2-points, consequently prior to this date drop-goals were often not explicitly documented, therefore '0' drop-goals may indicate drop-goals not recorded, rather than no drop-goals scored. In addition, prior to the 1949–50 season, the archaic field-goal was also still a valid means of scoring points.
