Noble began as an amateur with Southampton then of the Third Division South, and then Boscombe FC of the Southern League, who were soon to be known as Bournemouth and Boscombe Athletic, before he joined Leeds in May 1922. He made his Leeds debut on the same day as Percy Whipp. He played exactly half of United’s games in their 1923-24 Division Two Championship campaign after establishing himself the previous season. He had stiff opposition for his first team spot from Walter Coates, initially, and later John Armand and ‘Cud’ Robson, but the acquisition of Bobby Turnbull to bolster Leeds' team for the top flight saw him leave. He was transferred to Brentford in May 1925 and the Bees successfully converted him to Right Half. He played forty-one League games at Griffin Park before he was allowed to go to Millwall in May 1927. He only played four games for the Lions. He died on 1st April 1973, in Southampton.
