Developed a great understanding with Charlie O'Hagan in the Aberdeen side that came close to winning the title in 1911. One of the first players to receive a benefit match from Aberdeen.

After a brief spell with Falkirk, Willie retired from playing in 1913 because of injury problems. During the 1930's Willie had a spell as a football columnist for The Sunday Post. He had set up a newsagent's business at 85 Hilton Road, retiring through ill-health three years before he died aged 72 in 1954.
