He joined Port Vale from the Londoners in June 1934. Despite being utilized as a left-back on occasion he managed to rack up a respectable tally of 8 goals in 21 games for the Hanley based club. However, he never won a regular first team spot and was released in April 1936, at which point he moved on to Barrow.
