Preston, Lancashire born centre forward Joe Halliwell began his football career with Lostock Hall Loco, from where he signed for his hometown club Preston North End in October 1912 and made his Football League debut in the Second Division against Bury in November the same year. His 10 goals in 22 games helped Preston win the Second Division Championship that season but he only played a further 4 matches for The Lambs in 1913-14 before Second Division club Barnsley signed him in December 1913. He would stay nearly fourteen years at Oakwell, scoring 83 goals in 328 matches for The Tykes with a best scoring return of 21 League goals in 1919-20, when he was the club’s top goalscorer. That season, the first peacetime season after the First World War, he scored a hat-trick in their first match back at Oakwell in a thumping win over West Ham United and further hat-tricks against Lincoln City and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Despite being a consistent goalscorer he started to appear at right half from March 1921 and only missed 3 matches in that position as Barnsley narrowly missed out on promotion to the top flight in 1921-22, finishing third in the division. In 1922-23 he appeared at inside left from December that year and scored another hat-trick in a win over South Shields in March 1923. In 1923-24 he was the club’s second highest goalscorer with 17 goals behind Ernie Hine, and again scored a treble when he scored all three goals in a 3-1 win over Leicester City that October, missing only one match all season. In June 1927 he returned to Lancashire signing for Nelson, for whom he was an ever present in their 1927-28 campaign at right half, and for whom he scored 9 goals in 75 appearances over the next two seasons before joining non league Barnoldswick Town in 1929, later playing for St Paul’s of Preston in 1932 before his eventual retirement.
