Shinton was born in Wednesbury. He turned professional with West Bromwich Albion in April 1905 and remained with them until November 1907, when he joined Leicester Fosse for £150. In August 1910 he moved to Bolton Wanderers for a £1000 fee, but re-joined Leicester Fosse just five months later, for £750.
Shinton was not offered a contract by Fosse at the end of the 1910–11 season and instead joined Wednesbury Old Athletic, playing for the club in the Birmingham & District League. He featured in the club's Wednesbury Charity Cup winning side v Darlaston in March 1912, but although captaining the side at the start of the following season, he appears to have made no further appearances after October 1912.
He died at home in Wednesbury in April 1923 after a long illness.

Matthews' Who's Who of West Bromwich Albion gives Lancaster as place of death, but Wednesbury is consistent with death registration records.
