From what I can see he was at Galston and Kilwinning Eglinton before Arthurlie.

He signed for Middlesbrough from Arthurlie in March 1903 and played 3 league games (1 goal) in the last weeks of the 1902/03 season. He returned to Scotland to play for Kilwinning Eglinton and Abercorn (1 Scottish Cup game), and Morton (13 league games (7 goals)) before returning to England when he signed for Bury in March 1907. He made 116 league appearances (33 goals) for Bury in 5 and a bit seasons. He returned to Scotland to play for Hearts (28 league games (5 goals)). After being placed on the Open to Transfer List he went to Darlington in 1914 who were not a Football League club.

Siblings:

Currie, Samuel Percy
b. Kilwinning, Ayrshire, 22nd November 1887; d. Prestonpans, East Lothian, 7th December 1962
Career: 1906 Kilwinning Rangers; trials-St Mirren; May 1909 FOSSE; May 1922 Wigan Borough.
Fosse debut v Birmingham (A) 19.3.1910
Fosse’s regular left-back for six seasons before the war (as well as during it), and City’s for three campaigns after it, Sam displaced Dick Pudan and went on to forge useful back-line partnerships in hard times with Tommy Clay, Billy Barrett and Adam Black; in each successive case sharing the benefits of his experience with younger players. His signing actually cost Sam a medal, for Fosse swooped between the first, drawn, Final of the 1909 Scottish Junior Cup and its replay, in which Kilwinning triumphed. One of Fosse’s several early union activists, Sam played in December 1910 for the Players Union XI against a combined Manchester United/City side – scoring an own goal and being injured badly enough to miss the next five League fixtures! An occasional penalty-taker for Leicester (and for a while a lodger with Fosse trainer Harley Thompson in Windermere Road), he received a well-merited club benefit from the November 1919 game with North Shields, and took his veteran defensive skills into the Third Division (North) upon finally leaving City, before accepting the post of player-coach to Wigan’s reserves in March 1924. [b]Sam’s older brother Bob featured for each of Middlesbrough, Morton, Bury, Hearts and Darlington before WW1, while younger brother Duncan had established himself with Hearts when tragically killed in action on the Somme in 1916.[/b]
Apps: FL 236; FAC 12; WW1 123; Goals: FL 4; FAC 2; WW1 7.
