Armes began with Howden FC and Dawdon Colliery, before turning professional with Third Division North team, Carlisle United in May 1930. He scored nineteen times in seventy-six League appearances before he moved to Chester City in June 1932 where he scored nine goals in three successive home games in 1933-34, finishing with thirteen goals in thirty-one appearances. Blackpool signed him in January 1934 but after just four League games, loaned him out to Non-League Wigan Athletic, so Leeds had to pay Wigan and Blackpool, who held his League registration, when they signed him in October 1935. He was described as being “a sprinter marksman”. Leeds Manager, Billy Hampson, who had been his boss at Carlisle United, resurrected his career. He joined Middlesbrough in February 1939, but was released by them in August 1946, after just three League games, having lost the latter years of his career to World War Two. In that period he played twice for Middlesbrough in 1939-40 and seven times for Luton Town in 1940-41, but didn't score for either. He died in Sunderland on 27th August 1958.
