West Bromwich, Staffordshire born left back Harry Burton played for Sheffield junior club Attercliffe in 1901 before signing for First Division Sheffield Wednesday in 1903, making his Football League debut at Wolverhampton Wanderers that October. He soon established himself as their regular left back playing 26 games as Wednesday won the League Championship in his first season. He also played in April 1905 as Wednesday beat The Corinthians 2-1 to win the Sheriff of London Shield (the forerunner of The Charity Shield). It was reported that he “more than once must have verged on (becoming an) international” although he was never selected,

After playing in two FA Cup semi finals for The Owls, when they lost to eventual winners Manchester City at Goodison Park in the 1904 semi final, and to Newcastle United at Hyde Road, Manchester in the 1905 semi final, Burton won the FA Cup with Wednesday in April 1907 as they beat Everton 2-1 in the Final at Crystal Palace in front of 84,584 spectators. He continued playing for Wednesday until he was transferred, after 199 games, to hometown Second Division club West Bromwich Albion in April 1909, making his debut for The Baggies against Blackpool and playing 5 games before the season end as they narrowly missed out on promotion. He made a further 31 appearances for The Baggies in 1909-10 but lost his place, and had left The Hawthorns before joining Midland League club Scunthorpe & Lindsey United in October 1912 ahead of his eventual retirement,
