Newcastle United

A forward, Johnson began his career as a junior with hometown club Newcastle United. He was a prolific scorer for the club's youth and reserve sides, bagging nearly 50 goals. He failed to make an appearance for the Division One side and departed in January 1971.

Darlington (loan)

With a lack of first team opportunities available at Newcastle, Johnson joined Division Four side Darlington on loan in November 1969. He made four league appearances and scored one goal for the Quakers.

Southend United

Johnson signed for Division Four side Southend United in January 1971, for a £7,000 fee. He settled in well, scoring 8 goals in 21 games during the remainder of the 1970–71 season. Johnson was a virtual ever-present for the next three seasons, helping the club to promotion to Division Three in the 1971–72 season and picking up the club's Player of the Year award for his performances in the 1972–73 season. He departed the Shrimpers in November 1974, after making 170 appearances and scoring 38 goals.

Brentford

Johnson signed for Division Four side Brentford in November 1974 for a £15,000 fee. He made 110 appearances for the Bees and scored 30 goals before problems with homesickness saw him quit Griffin Park at the end of the 1976–77 season.

Blyth Spartans

Johnson saw out his career with a spell at Northern League side Blyth Spartans during the 1977–78 season. He was a part of the team which took Division Four side Wrexham to a replay in the fifth round of the FA Cup, a match played at St James' Park. Johnson was later inducted into the club's Hall of Fame.
