Budd began his career with Hanham Athletic, joining Exeter City in the 1926–27 season, but failing to appear in their league team. He joined Torquay United in 1927, making his debut on 17 December in a 1-1 draw at home to Gillingham. He played a further six games that season, Torquay's first in the Football League, scoring twice. He again struggled to make the first team the following season, playing only twice despite Torquay using a number of players at centre-forward that season.
