Southwick, County Durham full back Jack Webb began his football career with Sunderland Co-operative Wednesday in 1924 and played for North Eastern Marine Blues Apprentices in 1925 and Southwick Juniors in 1926 before being signed by First Division club Derby County in May 1927. His Football League debut came at Huddersfield Town in November 1929, one of two appearances he made that season and the first of only 25 appearances he would make over the next eight years.

He had a run of 7 appearances in December and January 1933-34 as Derby finished in fourth place in the League Championship, and played 7 times in the run in as they finished League runners up in 1935-36, but, although he could play both at right and left back, was kept on the fringes of the first team by the likes of England captain Tom Cooper, George Collin, and Ted Udall.

He moved to Newport County in June 1937 and played both sides of the Second World War for The Exiles, including his final two appearances in their 1945-46 FA Cup campaign in November 1945, making in total 46 appearances for County, 13 of which came as they won the Third Division (South) Championship in 1938-39, before returning to Derbyshire to join non league Ilkeston Town in 1946 before retirement.
