Sheffield born centre half Jack Moorwood began his football career after the First World War with Midland League club Alfreton, from where he was signed by Second Division club Stoke City in 1920, making his Football League debut at Cardiff City in February 1921. He made 9 appearances over the next two months before losing his place after 9 appearances after the team suffered three defeats in four matches in a season in which they only just avoided relegation.
Moorwood moved to newly elected Third Division (North) club Wrexham in the summer of 1921, and although he missed their inaugural League fixture, he only missed 4 other matches all season as Wrexham finished comfortably mid table. He scored his only two career goals in a 2-2 draw at Walsall two days after Christmas 1921, and he was again a regular the following season before losing his place at the start of February 1923.
Moorwood played only 5 more matches before the season end and only 3 matches during the whole of 1923-24 before leaving The Racecourse Ground to join non league Bangor City after 72 appearances for The Dragons. In 1925 he played for Sheffield club Gleadless and finished his playing career with spells at Sheffield Forge in 1926 and Woodhouse Working Mens Club in 1927.
