Dale played for Witton Albion before he transferred to Manchester United in June 1947. He made his United debut on 27 September 1947 in a 2–1 win at Preston North End. He only played one further game before he was bought by Port Vale for 'a substantial fee' (£1,000) in April 1948. He made his debut in a 1–0 home defeat by Walsall on 10 April 1948, but again failed to win a first team spot. He scored one goal in his next eight appearances before old club Witton Albion put in a then-Cheshire League record fee to bring him back to the club in October 1948.
