Wybert Symonds was an outstanding player in a period when the Norwood teams of the day included some of the club's all-time greats . Players such as Syd Ackland, Alec Bent, Alick Lill, Tiger Potts, Wacka Scott, Ern Wadham and Sid White, were just some of the star he played with; Symonds making his League debut on the same day as Lill.
  
In his time at the club, Norwood won three Premierships and were in the finals on three other occasions. One of the state's best wingmen throughout his career, Symonds was high in Norwood's best players in both the 1923 and 1925 Grand Final wins.

Noted for his pace and dash, "Will" as he was known, was selected to play on a wing for the South Australian second team that travelled to Broken Hill in 1925. The game, which South Australia lost, was played against the Barrier Ranges Football Association on the Jubilee Oval.

A teacher at Adelaide High School, Symonds retired from league footy when he was appointed headmaster of Kapunda High School in 1929. He was the first old scholar of Adelaide Boys High School to become its Principal. He retired in 1962.
