Tom Whittaker paid £15,000 for him in October 1953 but he was unlucky with injuries and his only goal in 29 First Division games came in Arsenal's 3-3 draw at home to Charlton Athletic five months later.

He moved to Mansfield Town in July 1956 before rejoining Glenavon in January 1958. Returning to his trade as a joiner, he scouted for Arsenal.
