Jock had been with Armadale and Third Lanark before he joined Dundee Hibs in the summer of 1923. After the name change he played in the first match as Dundee United on 27th October 1923 against Dumbarton and remained with the Club for over five years.

He was in the Second Division championship squad of 1924-25 and during two seasons in Division One but encountered relegation back to Division Two at the end of 1926-27. Although tempted with a move to the USA he remained with United for another full season and was awarded a benefit match. However, he did not re-sign and joined Stenhousemuir in November 1928.
