Born in Dumbarton in 1872, Taylor started off his career at local club Dumbarton F.C. before moving to play for St Mirren. In 1896 Taylor was signed by English club Everton whee he played in a number of positions. He was the only Everton player to feature in the FA Cup Finals of 1897, 1906 and 1907, finishing on the winning side in 1906.

In the 1910 FA Cup semi-final against Barnsley Taylor was struck by the ball in the throat, damaging his larynx. This effectively ended his professional career and he was transferred to amateurs South Liverpool.
