Oldfield played for Helsby, before joining Port Vale as an amateur in December 1945. He became a regular in the war leagues, and signed as a professional in February 1946. He actually guested for Vale's opponents on 20 April 1946, when Southend United lost 2–1 at The Old Recreation Ground. Oldfield then played for Vale in the reverse fixture two days later – which finished 1–1. He lost his place as the war ended and so only played one Third Division South game in the Football League, before being released by manager Gordon Hodgson at the end of the 1946–47 season.
