Bumphrey was born in Morpeth, Northumberland, and played for Ashington Alliance before joining Birmingham in August 1908. A heavily-built man, he was a strong tackler, though "a little wild", and headed the ball well despite being only 5 ft 8 in (1.73 m) tall. He made his debut in the Second Division on 31 December 1908, playing at inside left in a 1–1 draw away to Burnley. For the next couple of seasons he played sporadically, always in the forward line, until becoming a regular in the side at wing half. He made 143 appearances in all competitions for Birmingham in seven years, before moving back to his native north-east when the Football League suspended during the First World War. Bumphrey died in Durham.
