Born Dick, but sometimes called Richard, he was a comber in a mill and was said to have played with Bradford Park Avenue Reserves, Hebden Bridge, in the Lancashire Combination League before joining Bradford City where he played two games in early 1919, during the last season played under war conditions. (information courtesy of Neil Roche). He joined United from Laisterdyke in July 1920 and left for Denaby United in May 1921, before joining Frickley Colliery in the summer of 1924. He did not play for Leeds in the Football League. His sole games were in the Preliminary Rounds of the 1920-21 F.A. Cup when United were forced to play Reserve and lower grade players as the games clashed with the first team fixtures.
