Watson started with Clyde and was sold to First Division Newcastle United in November 1902 for £200. Watson had played for the Glasgow select XI, but failed to live up to his promise. He made three League appearances at St James’ Park before joining Southern League sides New Brompton and then in 1903, Brentford on a free transfer. It was not until July 1908 that Watson returned to League Football with Second Division Leeds City. He stayed for two years and built himself a reputation as Captain and reliable defender, making forty-five League and four F.A. Cup appearances before returning to his first club Clyde in 1910 to play out the rest of his career.
