He joined Leeds City in 1914 but did not play until the final games of the1916-17 Subsidiary Tournament, when he was given two games at Left-Half when Levy Thorpe was unavailable. He played the first game of the following seasonís Principal Tournament at Inside-Left when Arthur Price was absent but had to wait until November, when Clem Stephenson could not play, to get his next game at Inside-Right. Soon after that he was called into the team at Outside-Right to solve a long standing problem position and apart for one game, when he stood down to let the illustrious Charlie Buchan parade his talents for the Elland Road patrons, he played every game in the Principle and Subsidiary Tournaments. He also played in both of the Play-off Finals against Stoke when Clem Stephenson was unavailable. He was again in favour for half of the 1918-1919 Principle Tournament before giving way to Tom Hall. He joined Rotherham County in August 1919 and scored six times in thirty-six appearances during the next three seasons. He played wherever he could secure a game, but often at Wing-Half. He could never establish himself as a regular and had to be content to play the odd game whenever others became unavailable. He left Rotherham at the end of the 1921-22 season and went into Non-League with Worksop Town and Scunthorpe and Lindsey United. He died in 1980.
