Cummins was an inside forward who played for St. Patricks Athletic (prior to their joining the League of Ireland) before joining Everton in October 1950. He made just 24 appearances for the Merseyside club and didn't score before moving on to Luton Town in 1953. He went on to become one of Luton's best players over the next eight years, scoring 21 goals in 184 games and playing for them in the 1959 FA Cup Final.
At international level, Cummins won 19 caps for the Republic of Ireland, scoring five goals. His international debut was on 28 October 1953 in a 4-0 win over Luxembourg at Dalymount Park in a World Cup qualifier. In his second game for his country he scored the winner against the same opposition.
