Cunningham started with Sunderland Juniors and was brought to Leeds City in August 1908.
He was seen as “one for the future” and was expected to be cover for the two well
established goalkeepers in the incumbent Tom Naisby and his then deputy and City stalwart
Harold Bromage. This proved to be the case as the two proved to be the first choice keepers
throughout Cunningham’s stay with the club. His only appearance for City came as a last
minute replacement at the Baseball Ground and as City were put to the sword and lost 5-1, it
held no happy memories for the temporary keeper. It was his only Football League appearance
of his career and he drifted out of the game at the end of that season.
