Born in Islington, Badger started his career in Essex, playing for Clacton Town, Colchester Town and Ilford. He joined Tottenham Hotspur as an amateur in November 1903, and turned professional ten months later with Football League side Woolwich Arsenal. However, Badger was unable to break into the first team, and left to join Hertfordshire club Watford in August 1906 without playing a first team game. Badger made 54 Southern League appearances while at Cassio Road, scoring 5 times, and also played twice in the FA Cup. He left Watford to join Brentford in 1908 and Nottingham Forest the following year. At Forest, Badger finally played in the Football League.
