One of the Dons greatest ever servants, Cooper a tough full back joined Aberdeen in 1927, having made his reserve debut as a trialist from Mugiemoss in 26th February. His defining moment in a long Aberdeen career came in 1947 when a rare injury prevented him from playing in the Dons first Scottish Cup success in 1947. Such was his popularity that special permission was given by the SFA for Cooper to be presented with a medal.

Played many matches for the Dons during the War years and when (re)signed by the club in July 1941 the local press stated that he was engaged in "work of national importance". In February 1946, Willie applied for and was granted a free transfer, but it did not lead to anything.
