After the War he captained Spurs to their successive Second and First Division Championships in 1950 and 1951. He first represented Wales in unofficial matches during the War and when peacetime football resumed he was an automatic choice until 1954 making 31 appearances.

As a player he made 213 League appearances between 1931 and 1939.
