Club Career

Club(s) Started his junior career playing with the Little Dots FC club in 1884. He was playing for Blackburn Olympic FC in 1886-87. Joined Blackburn Rovers FC in 1887 and Everton FC in July 1888. After 270 league appearances and 97 goals, Chadwick was considered "too old" and Burnley FC then paid £40 for him, despite Everton's £200 pricetag, it was reduced after the Football League intervened, in 1899. Notts County FC had attempted to buy Chadwick in October 1897. Chadwick spent the season scoring ten goals in 31 league outings. In May 1900, Chadwick accepted an assignment to coach some players in Prague. On his return, Blackburn Rovers FC attempted to re-sign Chadwick in June 1900, but they refused to meet the £90 asking price, despite then offering £75. Rovers had only offered £40. Chadwick complained to the Football League again, but this time, the League did not intervene and the transfer was unsuccessful. So, unattached, he was signed by Southampton FC on 22 August 1900, the club of his cousin, Arthur. After a brief interlude with Blackburn Etrurians FC, he made 52 Southern League appearances, scoring eighteen. Joined Liverpool FC on 16 May 1902, making 43 league appearances and scoring seven.
