Johnson was among the leading players for Upper Armley Christ Church, one of the top teams in the West Yorkshire League when he signed for Leeds City in November 1906. He played only a peripheral part in the first team and was called up only once in the 1-0 home defeat by Chelsea on 17th November 1906. Despite the attraction of a leading team to Elland Road there was only an attendance of eight thousand. Chelsea and Nottingham Forest dominated the Division Two League that season. Forest finished top with sixty points with the Pensioners, just three points behind as both teams were promoted, with third placed Leicester Fosse on forty-eight and City back in tenth spot on thirty-six points in a twenty teamed League. A.E. Farrant of Bristol was the referee as George Hilsdon scored the only goal of the game in the fourteenth minute. Harry Bromage was in the Leeds goal, with David Murray and Andy Clark at full-back and the half back-line saw Fred Hargreaves, Fred Walker and Jimmy Kennedy. Fred Parnell was on the right wing with Garnet playing his first and only game for City on the left wing. Bob Watson was at inside right, John Lavery at inside left with George Page at centre forward. While Chelsea lined up : 1. Bob Whiting; 2. Joseph Walton, 3. Thomas Miller; 4. George Henderson, 5. Bob McRoberts, 6. Robert Bush; 7. Martin Moran, 8. James Robertson, 9 George Hilsdon, 10 James Windridge, 11 Jack Kirwan.
