Bridgett commenced his career with Stoke, his home-town team, but failed to make a senior appearance for them. He was signed by Leeds City in May 1909 as an understudy to Fred Croot. He had limited opportunities at Elland Road due to Croot being largely injury-free and maintaining a high level of consistency, but on the occasions when called upon he never let the side down. He remained at Leeds for four seasons before moving on the Non-League West Stanley. It is thought that he was related to Arthur Bridgett the Sunderland Captain and England Outside-Left.
