Millership started his career with his local club, near Wrexham and moved to Non-League Goole Town before joining Second Division Blackpool in July 1912. He had played thirty-one League games before World War One ceased Football League fixtures. He guested with Leeds City during the War and became a regular after his debut at Huddersfield Town in December of 1917. He was a member of the Leeds City team that became unofficial Champions of England after defeating Stoke in a two-legged play-off final in May 1918. Millership played at Right Back in both legs. On the resumption of Football League fixtures he signed for Leeds City in August 1919 and made his debut for his new club against his old club, at Blackpool in a 2-4 defeat on 30th August 1919. He had played all eight League games before the club was suspended and he was one of the players to be sold at the Hotel Metropole Auction, attracting one of the highest bids, £1,000, a club record from Second Division Rotherham County, who he duly joined in October 1919. He soon became a Welsh international full-back, and gained all of his six caps while at Rotherham. He played Right Back on his Rotherham debut at Stoke City on 25th October 1919. He netted a double in a 2-0 home win against Cardiff City on 12th March 1921. While at Millmoor he scored seven goals in eighty-one League appearances and didnít score in three F.A. Cup games. He moved to Second Division Barnsley in September 1922 but only made five League appearances before moving on to Castleford Town in July 1923. After retiring from the game he ran the Castle Hotel in Castleford, he then settled in Blackpool, where he was an attendant at the Winter Gardens and later worked in the building trade. He died in Blackpool in 1959.
