He began his career in his native Scotland with newly formed Rutherglen Glencairn in the late 19th century. He went on to have two spells with Greenock Morton, either side of a stint with Albion Rovers. In 1905, aged 20, he moved south to join Newcastle United. He made just two League appearances for the Magpies before joining Everton. In three years at Goodison Park he made forty League appearances.
In 1908 he joined Oldham Athletic, with whom he spent the bulk of his career. In six years he made 216 League appearances. He also scored his first League goal for the Latics, and went on to score nineteen in total.
After a short spell back in Scotland with Rangers, making five League appearances, he returned to Everton in 1919, for whom he made a further sixteen League appearances. The following year he moved a short distance up the west coast to sign with Blackpool. In nineteen League appearances with the Seasiders he scored one goal.
