A half back, Boyd started his career at West Perth when the WAFL resumed after the First World War. He won a Sandover Medal in 1922 and was appointed captain-coach the following season. In 1924 he lost his coaching duties but remained captain. He retired in 1925 after playing his 100th game, but returned to West Perth in 1928 as coach and remained with the club for three seasons.[1]
