A Bradford (Park Avenue) player at the time, Giles was a forward who played in a public practice game at St James' Park on on 18 August 1945 prior to making a solitary guest appearance for Exeter City in a 2-1 defeat at Crystal Palace in October 1945 in a Division Three South (South of the Thames) fixture.
