Starting with Newton Heath Albion, Johnson then joined his hometown Colne in 1904 before breaking into Second Division football with Blackpool. He showed early promise at Bloomfield Road, scoring on his debut in a 2-2 draw at home against Gainsborough Trinity on 16th September 1905. It was his only goal in thirty four League games he made before returning to Lancashire Combination Colne in 1907. He moved to Exeter City in 1908, and helped them in their first season in the Southern League before joining Non-League Coventry City in 1909. He came back to League football when he joined Leeds City in 1911. He never fully established himself at Elland Road, but his highlight was scoring in a 2-1 home win over Grimsby Town on 23rd January 1912. Johnson only stayed one season at Leeds and did not play professionally after that.
