He joined West Bromwich Albion in September 1879 and was a member of the club's first senior squad of 1879-80. He netted Albion's first recorded goal on 20 December 1879, in a friendly against Black Lake Victoria. He also played in Albion's first FA Cup match, against Wednesbury Town in November 1883.
