Hallís career started in his home town and he played for Newburn Manor, Newburn Grange and Newburn Alliance, before signing for First Division Sunderland in January 1909. Though still only a teenager, he made the first team in his first season at Roker Park and followed that up with two more in the 1910-11 season and netted his first goal, though still not twenty. There were seven games the following season before he established himself as a regular in the first team squad in the 1912-13 season. No sooner was he established when he was sold to First Division Newcastle United in May 1913. He made thirty League appearances and scored eight goals, including one from the penalty spot, in his stay at Sunderland. Before World War 1 saw the ceasing of Football League fixtures he was the Magpies first choice Centre Forward and had scored fourteen goals in forty-two League appearances. As Newcastle United had refused to field a team in the wartime football fixtures, Hall, like many other players guested with other clubs. He first turned out for Leeds City in late October 1918 and played the rest of the games in the Principal Tournament at Inside Right or when Clem Stephenson returned he partnered him at Outside Right. He also played twice at Inside Left and once at Outside Right in the Subsidiary Tournament. Upon the resumption of Football League fixtures he immediately returned to Gallowgate and he added a further goal to his tally in twelve League appearances before joining Third Division Gillingham in July 1920. He had scored fifteen goals in fifty-four League appearances and one goal in four F.A. Cup games for Newcastle United. He gave fine service to Gillingham scoring forty-seven goals in one hundred and ninety League appearances, and eight goals in seventeen F.A. Cup games, before retiring at the end of the 1925-26 season and becoming the Gillingham Trainer.
