He is the all-time fourth highest scorer for English club Everton and scored the only goal to win the 1906 FA Cup Final. Some attribute to him a total of 113 league goals for Everton, which would put him in second spot behind Dixie Dean. He was also the Football League's top scorer in 1906–07. In 1911 he joined Tottenham Hotspur where he scored three goals in five appearances. After leaving White Hart Lane, Young went on to play for Manchester City before ending his playing career at South Liverpool.
Young was convicted of the manslaughter of his brother in Australia in June 1916 and sentenced to three years' imprisonment. At times it was rumoured that he was hanged for sheep-rustling in Australia. Young, who was considered mentally unstable, died in an Edinburgh asylum. He is buried in an unmarked grave, and Everton FC, which supported him throughout his life with occasional cash assistance, intends to create a memorial by September 2014.
