It took a year and four months for his league debut to arrive, however, when the defender started in a 2-1 defeat to Sunderland.

Seddon found himself on the fringes of the first team but was a regular fixture in the reserves where he went on to make over 200 appearances.

He eventually departed for Grimsby Town for £2,500 in March 1932 before joining Luton. He became a trainer at Notts County in 1934 before taking up a position at Romford as a trainer-coach four years later.

Seddon served in the Army in west Africa during the war.
