CareerEdit

Todd was one of six players to join Dunfermline Athletic in May 2018 after graduating from Fife Elite Football Academy.[2] He had previously taken part in a number of Dunfermline matches, and scored in a Fife Cup match against Burntisland Shipyard, which was abandoned after 50 minutes due to a serious injury to Pars player Aaron Splaine.[3][4]

Todd made his first appearance after signing with the club in a Scottish Challenge Cup victory over Inverness Caledonian Thistle, playing the full 90 minutes.[5] His first league appearance came in a 3–0 win over Partick Thistle, where he replaced Kallum Higginbotham in the final minutes of the match.[6]

In September 2020, Todd moved on season-long loan to Scottish League Two side Brechin City.[7] Following the postponement of football in the Scottish lower leagues in January 2021, Todd was recalled by his parent club.[8]
