Born in the village of Strathmiglo in Fife, Kay was a centre-forward who joined Argyle from Cowdenbeath in December 1919. He played for the reserves until his opportunity came in the March of that season: two appearances in four days that led the Western Evening Herald to conclude that "he lacks the dash and vim which are so essential in a successful pivot". However, he scored freely for the reserves and won Plymouth & District League and Devon Cup medals.
Kay returned north of the border in July 1920 to join Dundee Hibernian (who three years later became Dundee United). However, five months later, after just three appearances, he was given a free transfer and a cash settlement of £12 to allow him to sign for Lochgelly United. In the summer of 1921 he joined Raith Rovers and 12 months later came a move to Cupar F.C., just a few miles from his birthplace.
