McSkimming played for Kilmarnock and Hurlford before moving down to England with Stoke in time for the first season of the Football League becoming the first Scottish footballer to sign for Stoke. He was top scorer in the 1888–89 season with six as Stoke endured an awful start to league football finishing bottom of the table. He found the net in three of the club's four league wins; his goals at the Victoria Ground came against Notts County, Accrington, Blackburn Rovers, and away from home in the return fixtures with Notts County and Blackburn (2).
He joined nearby Burslem Port Vale in the summer of 1889. His appearances were mostly limited to friendlies, his business commitments helping to restrict his playing opportunities. He was released, most likely in 1891 and later played for Stone Town.
