Born in Glasgow, he moved to England to join Crewe Alexandra, then playing in the Birmingham & District League, where he made his name as a goal-poacher. He signed for Small Heath, newly promoted to the Football League First Division in 1903 for a fee of £25, but failed to adapt to League football. Two years later, along with fellow Small Heath players Jimmy Windridge and Bob McRoberts, he moved to Chelsea, where he scored 21 goals in the club's first season in the Football League, including 1 goal in the F.A Cup rounds. Spells followed with Leyton, Partick Thistle, Ayr United, Barrow, Leeds City and Gateshead Town, before he retired in 1915.
