Career

McIntosh moved into league football with Wolverhampton Wanderers from non-league club Folkestone Town in 1937. He made his league debut on 23 October 1937 in a 2-1 win at Leeds United and became a first choice player the following season, which featured a run through to the FA Cup Final, where they lost to underdogs Portsmouth at Wembley.

After the suspension of league football in September 1939 due to the outbreak of the Second World War, McIntosh still turned out for Wolves in wartime fixtures, and was part of their 1942 War Cup victory.

By the resumption of the Football League, he was no longer part of manager Ted Vizard's plans and played just four more times before joining Midlands neighbours Birmingham City in 1947. After a short stay there, he moved on again, joining Coventry City for an equally brief spell.

He died in 1965, aged 49.
