Kay joined First Division Bolton Wanderers in 1906, but was unable to make the first team and left to join Second Division Leeds City in May 1907. He soon became a regular at Elland Road missing only seven games in his only season with the club. He was an extremely reliable and steady full-back and one would question the wisdom of City allowing him to join Southern League club Swindon Town, with City team-mates Bob Jefferson and Jack Lavery, in the summer of 1908. He became a fixture in the Swindon team, where he became known as the best Right-Back never to have been capped by England. He played his part in helping the club to reach the Semi-Finals of the F.A. Cup in 1910 and 1912. He played his first game for Swindon in the Southern League at Watford on 2nd September 1908 and his final game in the Third Division South of the Football League at Newport County on 15th October 1921, when he retired. He played most of his Swindon career in the Southern League but when Swindon were elected to the Third Division at the start of the 1920-21 season he was able to play thirty-one League games and two F.A. Cup ties in the two seasons before retiring. While with Swindon he played a further two hundred and forty games in the Southern League, twenty-one further F.A. Cup games, eight Southern League Cup games and a F.A. Charity Shield game with Manchester United at Stamford Bridge in September 1911 and a Dubonnet Cup tie with Barnsley in Paris in May 1910, a total of three hundred and four games.
