Club Career

Despite becoming club captain, a shoulder injury prevented him from fulfilling his true potential and he was sold to Everton FC in December 1890. But he remained a Daren player for the rest of that season. However, when he did join Everton, the following summer, he played only once, against West Bromwich Albion FC on 5 September 1891, and promptly hung up his boots. He did, however, play for Darwen once more on 2 January 1893 against Burnley. He left Darwen to join Blackpool FC in February 1893. In December 1894, Marsden was helping out in the Lancashire League.
