Musgrove was one of the best players in the North-East in the period immediately after World War One. He captained England Schools against Wales in 1907 and joined Second Division Barnsley scoring twice in twelve games before the outbreak of World War One. He made a name for himself with Non-League Durham City, before joining Leeds in July 1920, in time for United’s first season in the League. He was in the team at Right Half for the first match at Port Vale and was a regular through out the season but moved up to Inside Right in the latter part of the season. He was easily recognisable because of his premature baldness. He returned to Durham City in July 1921, after they were elected into the Third Division North and enjoyed a long stay, which included a spell as Player-Manager. He scored twice in fifty-six League games. He died in November 1934, prematurely at the age of forty-one.
