Wally was born in Ashton-in-Makerfield on 13 February 1941 and made his debut appearance for Villa on Saturday, 9 November 1957 aged just 16.

Villa had signed Wally from Wigan Schoolboy football as a junior player in 1956 and he signed professional forms with the club in February 1958 following his goalscoring debut against West Bromwich Albion, a game in which he also set up Villa’s second.
