He joined United as an apprentice on leaving school in the summer of 1948. After several seasons playing in the reserve and youth sides, he became a professional in 1951 and over the decade made 12 league appearances as full-back cover for Roger Byrne on the left and Bill Foulkes on the right. He made his first senior appearance in the 1954-55 season.
He did not play any first-team games during the 1957–58 season, having been on the sidelines for several months with a broken foot, and only travelled to Belgrade as cover for Roger Byrne - who had not been expected to play in the match due to injury, but still did.
He died in the Munich air disaster on 6 February 1958 and was buried in St. John's Churchyard in Bolton Road (A666), Pendlebury (just over the Pendleton/Swinton and Pendlebury boundary at Irlams o' th' Height). He was survived by both of his parents as well as his wife and five-month-old daughter.
His widow Marion contributed to a 1998 ITV documentary, Munich: End of a Dream, which marked the 40th anniversary of the tragedy.
