Born: 19 November 1915
Came from: Everton Went to: Manchester United
First game: 04 December 1937 Last game: 17 December 1938
Appearances: 29 (29/0) Goals: 20
The Liverpool-born centre-forward joined Argyle from Everton, his first club although he did not make a first team appearance. Whilst at Goodison Park he had a loan spell with New Brighton, for whom he made his League debut, showing good early promise with 8 goals from 13 appearances. Moving to Home Park in 1937, he developed an excellent scoring record of 20 goals in just 29 games spread across the end of one season and the start of the next. It was enough to earn a move to Manchester United in 1939 but the outbreak of the Second World War meant he never played for the Old Trafford club. At the end of the war he played for Merthyr Tydfil and also turned out in a friendly for Argyle, who decided against re-signing him. In the 1947-48 season he scored 15 goals in 27 games for Cardiff City before moving to Nottingham Forest for 13 games. He then wound down his career with a return to Merthyr Tydfil as player manager and a spell with Worcester City.
