He made his debut at Vale Park in a 6–1 win over Aldershot on 21 December and got his second game in a 1–0 defeat to Coventry City at Highfield Road four days later (Christmas Day). However, he never played for Norman Low's "Valiants" again in the 1957–58 season, and was transferred to Burton Albion in March 1958.
