Lamph started with Pelaw United, and then Spennymoor United, where he represented the North Eastern League against the both the Central League and the Southern League, before joining Second Division Leeds City in April 1914. He had played one game at Left Half before the end of the 1913-14 season and had just two games in the following season before WW1 brought a cessation to Football League fixtures. He scored once in sixteen appearances in the Principal Tournament of the 1915-16 season, but did not play again for City until the start of the 1917-18 season in which he was a regular and was part of the Leeds City team which beat Stoke in the Play-off Final to become the unofficial Champions of England, missing only two games all season in the Centre Half position, which he occupied after playing the first three games at Right Half. He was back at Wing Half in the following season, missing only four games, in the last season before the resumption of the Football League Competition. He had played all eight games of the new campaign and had just scored against Wolverhampton Wanderers when City’s existence came to an abrupt halt. He was one of the players sold at the Metropole Hotel auction, moving to Manchester City for £800 in October 1919. He made eleven appearances for the First Division club before moving to First Division Derby County in March 1920. He played sixteen League games and one F.A. Cup match while at the Baseball Ground. He came back to Elland Road when he joined the new Second Division Leeds United in February 1921 and made six League appearances before retiring in 1922 through ill-health. Along with Ivan Sharpe he was one of the two players to play for both Leeds City and Leeds United in peacetime. Harry Sherwin played for Leeds United in peace-time and Leeds City in War-time. He died on 24th February 1926 at the early age of thirty-three.
