Debut 18 March 1922 Connah's Quay (Away)

 

Like many footballers William played first at junior level where he won four medals. In the First World War he was with the Royal Welsh Fusiliers serving in Egypt, Mesopotamia and France over a period of four years.

After the war he had trials at Stalybridge, Stockport County and Mossley joining Macclesfield for the 1921-22 season.  He signed for Macclesfield as an inside forward but during his time with the reserve side made the move to full-back. Towards the end of the 1921-22 season, following an injury to Chadderton, he was promoted to the senior side where he remained until 1924. For most of the time he played at full-back although in the 1923-24 season he showed his versatility often filling the left-half position. William was described as a resolute player who tackled fearlessly and never gave up on what looked to be a lost cause.

On leaving Macclesfield he signed for Whitchurch for the 1924-25 season and moved to Hurst the following season.

Away from football he lived in Stockport and was a cotton spinner by trade. He was a champion runner, winning six medals for distances from one mile to five miles.  In addition, he was a keen cricketer and at one time headed the bowling averages for St Paul's Cricket Club.

Used as a right-back and then in a centre-back position, Rae was a skilful player who controlled the ball well, passed accurately and moved round opponents with ease. During the 1998-99 season he suffered from glandular fever which turned into the debilitating illness, ME,  but with a careful diet and plenty of rest, Rae resumed playing the following season to become one of the Silkmen’s best players at that time. In the summer of 2001 he moved to Port Vale and later to Bangor City.  Rae has since retired from professional football and is now a fireman for the Greater Manchester Fire Service. Also a sports masseur providing his services to the Silkmen from the 2013-14 season to date.
