Edward Quigley joined his home town club as a full-back in 1941, but through necessity was converted to an attacker.

1947 he joined Sheffield Wednesday for 12,000 and he scored 50 goals in 76 League appearances.
In December 1949, Preston North End paid a British record transfer fee of 26,500 for him. Quigley found goal-scoring at North End more difficult, but while at Preston he won a Second Division championship medal and represented England 'B' twice against Holland and Italy.

The 1959-60 season saw Quigley’s side climb to 8th place and the now veteran inside forward netted 10 goals in 41 appearances.

Quigley’s last season at Seel Park came the following term as Mossley finished in 8th place and won the old Ashton Challenge Cup for the last time beating Ashton United 5-1 on aggregate in the final. Quigley made 31 appearances scoring seven goals and retired from playing age 41.
