Willie was signed from Dundee North End. In his first four seasons he was a regular in the line up and was top scorer in 1912-13. In April 1915 he signed up for military service but remained a registered Hibs player during WW1, leaving at the end of 1918-19.

Willie returned in September 1920 and saw the Club through the season in the semi professional Central League and the following season in the Scottish League. He was the first and only Dundee Hibs player to receive a benefit. At the end of season 1921-22 he was finally released. His total appearances in all competitions is unsurpassed by any other Dundee Hibs player.
