Freeborough started with his home-town team Second Division Stockport County in 1902. He made twenty-six appearances for them before they dropped out of the Football League. He moved to Southern League Tottenham Hotspur in 1904. He spent most of his time in their reserve team and jumped at the chance to join Second Division Leeds City in April 1906. He went straight into the first team, playing Left Half on debut but switching to Centre Half for the final game of the season at Glossop. His first full season saw him at Centre Half for the third and fourth game of the season, but he was then out of favour until he had a run of seven games at his favoured Right Back position starting in December. After missing five fixtures he was back once more at right back for the remaining eleven games of the season. He found himself once more out of favour in the 1907-08 season and only had one game at Left Back in October and then had to wait until the last game of the season before getting his final game for the club at Right Back. He joined Bradford Park Avenue, who had been newly promoted to the Second Division, in July 1908. He made ten League appearances at Park Avenue and later played for Non-League clubs Rochdale and Denton. He returned to play for his native Stockport County in the War years. He died in 1961.
