He returned to the Football League with Len Ashurst's Sheffield Wednesday, making 15 Third Division appearances in the 1975–76 season. He left Hillsborough for Norwich City, but played just one First Division game in the 1976–77 campaign for John Bond's "Canaries". He moved from Carrow Road to Hereford United, but played just 11 league games at the "Bulls" were relegated out of the Third Division. He returned to Buxton after leaving Edgar Street. He signed with Dennis Butler's Port Vale from Buxton for a £1,000 fee in November 1978.[1] He played five consecutive Fourth Division games for the club around January 1979, but did not solve Vale's troubles on the left side of midfield and was instead given a free transfer to Alliance Premier League side Stafford Rangers in May 1979.[1] He later played for Macclesfield Town and Matlock Town before returning to his home town club in Buxton; he later played in Finland for KuPS.[2]
