He started his North American Soccer League career with a single appearance for the Vancouver Whitecaps in 1978, but went on to appear in 80 games for the Edmonton Drillers from 1979 to 1982.[1]

Ferguson would go on to play for such teams as the Hamilton Steelers of the Canadian Soccer League and the Cleveland Force/Cleveland Crunch of the Major Indoor Soccer League.
