Anderson served an engineering apprenticeship in the Dundee shipyards but by 1945 he had already made his debut as a county golfer and as a professional footballer.

A right-back, he turned out for St Johnstone, East Fife and Forfar Athletic before trying his luck in England. He joined Southampton on a free transfer in November 1949 and in June 1952 he moved to Exeter City. He then moved back to Scotland, joining United and remained there until a knee injury forced him to retire in 1956. He was able to resume his golfing activities. An Angus County player for over twenty years, he won the Monifieth Links Championship four times and was runner-up on many other occasions. He continued to play golf until five tears ago and his eldest son, Sandy became a well-known golf professional.
