Shildon, County Durham born centre half Sidney Nicholson began his senior football career on the books of Second Division Cardiff City in 1929-30 without making a senior appearance for The Bluebirds. He joined Merthyr Town in 1930 before moving to Bournemouth & Boscombe Athletic in 1931, for whom he made his Football League debut at Crystal Palace in January 1932. A fringe player in his two years at Dean Court, he made 4 appearances per season for The Cherries before joining Midland League Scunthorpe & Lindsey United in 1933.

He returned to the Football League in 1934, signing for Chesterfield but failed to make an impact and didn’t play a first team game in 1934-35, before a move to Barnsley in 1935. He stayed two years at Oakwell but remained a fringe player, making only 7 first team appearances before moving to Aberdeen in December 1937, making his Scottish League debut in a 3-3 draw at Arbroath the same month. He assumed the club captaincy, however his career was cut short by the outbreak of the Second World War, during which he served in the Army and played for Aberdeen occasionally, his last appearances coming in 1944-45. Before the outbreak of War, he had scored 5 goals in 65 appearances for The Dons.
