Returning to Clyde the following year, he spent another seven years with the club, and appeared in the 1910 Scottish Cup Final, where Clyde lost to Dundee in a second replay. In 1910 he joined Birmingham, where he spent four years before moving into non-league football with Bloxwich Strollers. After serving in the First World War, he played for Brierley Hill Alliance.
