He left Hibs after it was discovered he was not a practising Catholic which, at the time, was a strict requirement.

At Hearts he made 9 apps/9 gls between the period 26 Dec 1883 to 16 Feb 1884.

His career at Bolton spanned the period 23 Feb 1884 to 1 Mar 1892. When he lost his place in the team he left football and went to work in the shipyards.
