‘Super’ Will Buckley


Nationality: English
Height:6’0″ (183 cm)
Weight:13st 0lbs (82.63 kg)


A former youth scholar at Rochdale, Buckley went on to make his league bow for the club against Hereford in February 2008. He went on to establish himself as a regular on the wing and having helped the club to the top of League Two last season, he joined Watford in January 2010. In 2010/11 he made 30 appearances for the Hornets, scoring four goals, before breaking Albion’s transfer record with a move to the Amex Stadium in June.


Will made possibly the most explosive  and significant debut of any professional footballer ever (maybe). His two goals on 83 and 97 minutes of the opening game at the Amex turned a 0-1 defeat into a memorable 2-1 win and completed a perfect day. For this and this alone, Will Buckley will always be an Albion legend. He has gone on to be a pretty good player for us too!
