He spent three years at Rhyl and was a stand out performer in the league which attracted the attention of a number of Football League sides. He joined Stoke City in 1958 with Frank Taylor acquiring the full backs signature. He made his debut for the "Potters" in a 6–1 win against Lincoln City in September 1959.
