Hamilton started his football career with Petershill and was signed by Manager Frank Scott-Walford for Leeds City in August 1909. he was one of several outside Rights that were on the books at that time and Colin Stockton was the one chosen for the first three games of the 1909-10 season, before David Dougal was given his chance for the next three games. Hugh Roberts was on the right flank for the next game before Hamilton was finally given his chance in the eighth game. He was retained for the next game before giving way to David Dougal for three games before an injury to left winger Fred Croot saw David Dougal switch flanks to give Hamilton his final game for City but two games later Hugh Roberts took his chance to make the Outside Right spot his own, playing every game to the end of the season, but not before David Dougal and a fifth Outside Right for the season in Dickie Joynes had played the two games in between. His games for City all ended in defeat, as they lost 1-2 in his debut game at Oldham Athletic, were given a 0-7 humbling by Barnsley at Elland Road in his second and went down 0-5 at Molineux in his final game against Wolverhampton Wanderers. Therefore, it could be seen that Hamilton was never going to be a regular choice at Elland Road and he was not retained at the end of the season and never played professional football again.
