Sheffield born inside forward Sam Taylor had played junior football for Atlas & Norfolk in 1911 and Silverwood Colliery in 1912 and after the end of the First World War joined Second Division Huddersfield Town in 1919, making his Football League debut against Clapton Orient that August and enjoying a sensational first League season, scoring 41 goals in his debut season of which 6 came in Huddersfield’s Cup run as they went all the way to the FA Cup Final of 1920, only to be beaten 1-0 by Aston Villa in the Final at Stamford Bridge losing to a Billy Kirton extra time goal. He scored hat-tricks against Hull City and Stockport County, he was of course comfortably the club’s leading scorer and his goals helped Huddersfield to promotion to the First Division as divisional runners up.

In January 1921, halfway through the new season, he was transferred to Sheffield Wednesday after 45 goals in 67 appearances, and he played for Wednesday for five seasons in the Second Division during which time he scored 39 goals in 128 appearances before joining non league Mansfield Town in 1925. He returned to Football League action with Southampton in 1926 and was a near ever present in 1926-27. His two seasons at The Dell produced 17 goals in 76 appearances, before returning to Yorkshire to join Halifax Town in the summer of 1928.

After only a few months at The Shay and a single goal in 14 appearances he joined non league Grantham later the same year, before once again returning to League action in 1929 with Chesterfield. He scored 3 times in 11 appearances during the early months of the 1930-31 season which saw Chesterfield win the Third Division (North) Championship, before joining Welsh League Llanelly in 1931 after 9 goals in 27 appearances for The Spirites. He joined non league Loughborough Corinthians in 1932 before retirement.
