Johnson played for Sheffield United between 1916 and 1931. He is Sheffield United's all-time top goalscorer with 201 goals. He played his first match in United colours for a Reserve side at Heckmondwike, and upset the home fans who "displayed a certain amount of animosity," and one irate man even waved an unloaded gun at him.
He played for Mansfield Town between 1932 and 1935, for which he is also all-time top goalscorer with 114 goals in all competitions.
His father, also known as Harry (although his birth forename was William), also played for Sheffield United and gained six caps for England. His younger brother Tom also played for the Blades for several years.
