He was capped a total of nine times, but there was an extremely long hiatus in his career due to the Second World War - he gained his first cap in 1935, and his last in 1948. He gained four caps in the 1947-48 season. This gives him one of the longest international careers on record. Only he and W.B. Young were capped on either side of the War.
In later life, he became a referee.
