Arthur signed from Brechin Victoria and made a sensational debut scoring four goals to set the trend for the high scoring centre. He struck up an immediate understanding with Bobby Gardiner and the pair soon became known as ‘the mighty midgets’.

Arthur ended all four of his seasons at United as top scorer. He went to Liverpool on loan in March 1937and due an administrative error, became a free agent and was signed by Hibs. In November 1939 he returned to United, featuring regularly in the side during 1939-40 and he was in the side for the Emergency War Cup final in May 1940.
