Born in Sheffield, Morton began his career with Stourbridge before joining Wolverhampton Wanderers in February 1933. He then joined Manchester United via a short spell back at Stourbridge in May 1935. His only game for United came against West Ham United on 16 November 1935, and he left to join Torquay United in May 1936.
