Club career

Anderson began his career in the Hendon F.C. Academy, turning professional with the club in 1968. In 1970, he transferred to Luton Town. His first match came on 13 February 1971 in a 1-0 victory over Watford. In December 1975, Luton Town sold Anderson to Royal Antwerp in order to prevent banckruptcy. In 1978, Anderson moved to the San Diego Sockers of the North American Soccer League. He played eleven matches, scoring six goals off two hat tricks, before a midseason transfer to the Tampa Bay Rowdies. The Rowdies advanced all the way to Soccer Bowl '78. He played in Tampa for three outdoor and two NASL indoor seasons. In the fall of 1978, he went on loan to Sheffield United, but broke his collar bone late in the English season and missed all of the 1979 NASL season, except for six playoff games and Soccer Bowl '79. The following March, Anderson scored the title-clinching goal in a mini-game tie-breaker for the Rowdies versus Memphis in the 1980 NASL Indoor Championship Finals. In 1980, Millwall hired Anderson as player-manager. In 1982, the team released him and he finished his career with Hendon before returning to live in the United States.

In 1997, he founded Bayshore Technologies in Tampa Bay.
