RIP Willie - met him a few times through my Dad's cousin - Jim "Scoop" Rodger, another Shotts man and fine journalist. Was a proper gent to this young 'well fan - well I was young when I met him.

I never met Wullie,  but I vividly remember the match against Flamengo in 1960 I think.  Incredibly, we won 9-2 and Wullie was the right back up against the Brazilian world class left winger.  Each time the Brazilian approached, he jinked right, left and back to right again.  Wullie, still reacting to the first jink, caught him every time.

RIP to a player who was part of a group that have attained legendary status at our club. I am too young to have seen the Ancell Babes, but my late father spoke of them with such reverence that they must have been something to behold when in full flight and Willie McSeveney’s name was mentioned often. My respects and sincere thoughts are with his friends and family for their loss.
