Club Career

Club(s) Began his junior career with Aspull Juniors FC. Also played with Atherton FC and joined Manchester United FC as an amateur in April 1916. Signed professional forms in September 1917. Everton attempted to buy Silcock during the 1923-24 season, but the price was too high. He became club captain and made 423 league appearances, scoring just twice. After being placed on the free to transfer list on 4 May 1934, he went to Oldham Athletic FC on 4 August, but he seems to have made no first team appearances. He retired later that year. However, he did spend a couple of seasons from July 1936 with Manchester club Droylsden United FC.
