Following this he spent a season with Woolwich Arsenal before moving overseas once more where he plied his trade with Genoa Cricket and Football Club in Italy for 3 seasons, from 1912-1915. He was a prolific goal scorer for the Genoa team and helped them to win the Italian Championship title in 1915.
