In his four years at Newcastle Tommy was always considered to be a 'back-up' player rather than a first-team regular. Like many his career was interupted by the Great War (WW1) and on the cessation of hostilities he went to first Coventry City, then Caerphilly and Newport County.
The mid-1920s saw Tommy become player-coach at Yeovil Town before taking over as manager at Barrow in 1930 where he remained for seven years. In April of 1937 he was appointed manager of Walsall but his short-lived reign there was not a happy one. Under his leadership, The Saddlers struggled and twice had to apply for re-election to the Third Division (South) in 1938 and 1939 and they parted company soon after the outbreak of World War II.
Leaving Fellows Park, he scouted for Arsenal and then Norwich City, His association with The Canaries spanned the 1960s and he was still at Carrow Road when Norwich City reached Division One for the first time in their history in 1972.
