Wade played some of his early football with Richmond, then in the Victorian Football Association, but also appeared for Leopold. He started his VFL career at Melbourne and made his league debut in round three of the 1904 VFL season, against Fitzroy at the MCG. It would be his only senior game for Melbourne.
Wade was a regular fixture in the South Melbourne team for four seasons, starting in 1906 when he did not miss a game. The following year he was South Melbourne's centreman in the 1907 VFL Grand Final, which they lost. He also played in the 1909 Grand Final, as a back pocket defender, replacing an injured Bill Dolphin. On this occasion he finished on the winning side, giving South Melbourne their first premiership.
