Career

Herron was born in Durham and began his career with non-league West Stanley. He moved to Stoke in 1910 who at the time were playing in the Southern League and began a useful back up to first choice Bert Gadsden. He played in 20 matches in 1914–15 as Stoke won the Southern Football League Division Two title and were able to gain re-election to the Football League and Herron was tipped to become a fine 'keeper. But World War I was declared and Herron joined the Army, and he lost his life in France in 1917.
