He soon established himself as their number one glovesman, and was an ever present as Chesterfield won the Third Division (North) Championship in 1930-31.

However with the arrival of George Ashmore from West Bromwich Albion he was relegated to the understudy role at Saltergate, and didn’t play at all for the first team after October 1932. After 109 appearances for The Spireites he joined Bristol City in the 1934 close season and was their principal goalkeeper until he lost his place after Christmas 1935, and he joined Luton Town in April 1936 after 73 appearances for The Robins.

He made 34 appearances as Luton won the 1936-37 Third Division (South) Championship, to join the small band of players who won medals for winning both (North) and (South) varieties. In total he played 67 times for The Hatters through to his last match for them in October 1938, before joining non league Chelmsford City in March 1939. The outbreak of the Second World War in September 1939 saw his retirement from football.
