Outside left 1931-1936.

Willie made his debut as a teenager at home against Swansea Town and he scored twice in a 6-2 win.
A serious knee injury ended his career, which was short, but spectacular, with him enjoying good support from the crowd as he as a popular player at the time.

His record of 86 goals in 194 League and FA Cup appearances for Tottenham was a good ratio and it won him the admiration of the Welsh selectors, who awarded him six Welsh caps.
