Player Profile

Brother of goalkeeper Harold, Willie followed his brother to Filbert Street just weeks later but suffered a similar fate in not sticking around too long. Harold was a back-up goalkeeper and made just eight appearances for Fosse, but at least it dwarfed that of Willie, who made just the one appearance.

It came in a clash away at Huddersfield Town, making his debut alongside his brother. He played on the wing and was seen as an outside-left player with plenty of pace, but was actually played on the right in his sole Fosse game, perhaps giving him the argument that he didn't really get a chance to shine.

His pace was highlighted by the fact that he was a former Hertfordshire 220-yard sprint champion but that wasn't enough to give him extra time in the Leicester starting eleven.

He went to Luton Town following his brief stint with Fosse but could only manage one more game for the Hatters before moving on to Letchworth Town.
