William "Willie" Mills (28 January 1915 – 1991) was a professional footballer, who played for Aberdeen, Huddersfield Town and Clyde. He was born in Alexandria, West Dunbartonshire, Scotland.

Mills was signed by Aberdeen from junior club Bridgeton Waverley in 1932.[1] He entered their first team almost immediately, aged 17.[1] Mills was primarily a creative player, but also scored frequently and was the club's top goalscorer in the 1933–34 season.[1] Mills represented Scotland three times between October 1935 and December 1936.[1][2]

He was transferred to Huddersfield Town in March 1938 for £6,500.[1] Mills did not stay long in English football, however, as the Second World War curtailed league play.[1] After the war concluded he played in the Highland Football League for Lossiemouth and Huntly.[1]
