Born in 1879 in Audley, Staffordshire, Buck started his career with local club Newcastle-under-Lyme and also had spells with Stafford Wesleyans and Stafford Rangers before joining West Bromwich Albion in 1900. In May 1903 he signed for Liverpool, but his stay there was short and he joined Argyle towards the end of their first season as a professional club.
Buck was virtually ever-present for Argyle over the next two years, playing primarily at inside-right, and was renowned as a hard worker with the best shot in the team. Returning to West Brom in April 1906, he spent a further eight years at The Hawthorns, making 265 appearances and scoring more than 80 goals for the club. He finished his career with a three-year spell at Swansea Town.
