Joined the Club in the 1874/’75 season and had a long and fruitful career up to his retirement in 1883. He captained the Club in the 1880/1881 season, the year that Wanderers moved to Lansdowne Road from Clyde Road (owing to the field at Clyde Road being required for tillage purposes). The Irish Football Annual reported at the time that Wanderers played the second half of the season side by side with the Lansdowne F.C. in complete harmony.
He and his club mate G. Seriven were first capped together against Scotland and played together in the next 3 internationals against England and Scotland.
He had the distinction of scoring a drop goal in his last cap against Scotland which Ireland won by his drop goal (4 points) to 1 try (3 points).
First Cap v Scotland 17/2/1879
Last Cap v England 19/2/1881
