Annis worked as a machinist before joining the club in August 1898 from Stafford Road (the town's railway works side), making his league debut on 14 March 1899 in a 2–0 win at Bury. He went on to make 147 appearances in total for Wolverhampton Wanderers, scoring one goal. In this period, Wolves' performance in the league was mediocre, but they did win the Birmingham Senior Cup twice during his stay at the club (in 1899 and 1901).
