Anderson was born in Johnstone and played for local side Johnstone Burgh. In 1957 he joined Stoke City and he made an instant impact scoring on his debut against Rotherham United in September 1957. However Anderson was used as a back up during his four year spell at the Victoria Ground making 24 appearances scoring twice.
In the mid-1960s after a spell back in Scotland with Greenock Morton and Third Lanark he moved to Australia to play with South Melbourne where he came to the notice of the Australian selectors. He eventually played eight matches for the Socceroos, five of which were full internationals.
