Harris began his career with amateur club Queen's Park during the Second World War. He had briefly served in the RAF and Royal Navy during the War, but was sent back to university when it was discovered that he was a dental student, dentists being in short supply during the War. He also played for Scotland in one wartime international.
In 1946, Harris joined Aberdeen and was part of the team that won the club's first major honour, the 1947 Scottish Cup. He also played in the 1953 Scottish Cup Final for Aberdeen, but they were defeated by Rangers.
After leaving Aberdeen, Harris signed for Airdrieonians and played there for two seasons before retiring in 1956.
