Willie Watters

Willie WattersWillie Watters started his career at Bonnyrigg Athletic, before stepping up at Motherwell. He played on the right-wing, Willie was a clever and creative player, who upon signing from Bonnyrigg Athletic in 1947 made an immediate impact, missing only 2 league games in 1947/48. The next season his fortunes changed and he made only 1 appearance, Ian Goodall being chosen in front of him. Willie fought back into the side with some excellent performances and he did well in the next few seasons. The highlight of his career was in the League Cup final of 1950/51, when he scored a goal in Motherwell’s 3-0 win over the much fancied Hibernian side. That season he missed out on a Scottish Cup Final appearance as Motherwell fell 1-0 to Celtic, with Wilson Humphries being picked before Watters. After four seasons at Fir Park, Willie refused to re-sign for the 1951/52 season, requesting a transfer. He later joined Dunfermline Athletic.
