Willie joined United on loan from Hearts. He quickly settled into the side nad played regularly over 1925-26. After the season ended the player returned to Hearts but was immediately released and United moved in to sign him for the forthcoming campaign. Willie missed just a handful of games during that year but moved to Charlton Athletic for around 1,000 at the end of the season.
