Lane was born in Selly Oak, Birmingham. He began his football career with local club Boldmere St. Michaels before joining Birmingham City in 1949. He provided cover for any forward position, though preferred to play at inside forward, and contributed to the club winning the Second Division title in the 1954 55 season. He also played one game in the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup. After finishing his league career he played non-League football for Hinckley Athletic, scoring four goals in the club's first ever Southern League fixture, Kidderminster Harriers and Evesham United.
