A product of Sheffield Junior Football he spent two years with Midland League Club Wombwell before joining Leeds in May 1923 and making his debut in their Second Division championship winning season. Johnson spent eight seasons at Elland Road, despite long spells of Reserve-team football, he still managed a very respectable total of 73 games for Leeds. On 8th November 1924 his career was checked when he ruptured a kidney against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane. He recovered to play twenty-nine of the first thirty games in the 1925-26 campaign before losing his place to Jimmy Potts, who was virtually ever-present for the next five seasons. He went to Chester City in May 1931, with Tom Jennings, and notched fifty-four League games in less than two seasons. He had a spell with Non-League Bangor City, again with Tom Jennings. He then moved on to Crewe Alexandra in September 1933, where he made sixteen appearances. He finished his career with Non-League Oswestry Town.
