Brentford

A Winger, Bull began his career at Second Division side Brentford in 1948, but had to wait until 1953 to make his first team debut for the club. He appeared in three matches in February 1953 against Everton, Bury and Doncaster Rovers. He was released at the end of the 1952–53 season, having made just three appearances in five years at Griffin Park.

Swindon Town

Bull joined Third Division South side Swindon Town in the summer of 1953 and had a good first campaign for the struggling side, making 43 appearances and notching 12 goals, finishing as the club's top scorer. His form deserted him during the 1954–55 season, scoring just three goals in 29 appearances, before departing at the end of the campaign. Bull made 72 appearances and scored 15 goals for the Robins.

Non-league football

After his release from Swindon, Bull dropped into non-league football and played for Hastings United, Tonbridge, Tunbridge Wells United and Chatham Town. A memorable spell came with Southern League side Bedford Town, scoring 51 goals in 189 games and rounding out his time with the club by winning the South East Division title in the 1958–59 season.
