He played for Leicester between January 1920 and 1935 and made a total of 557 senior appearances for the Foxes, including 528 league appearances and he thus holds the record for most league appearances for Leicester. Black made his debut for Leicester on 24 January 1920 in a 3–2 victory over Hull City after becoming one of Peter Hodge"s first signings for the club and began to establish himself as a first team regular the following season. Over the following few seasons under Hodge, Leicester were slowly built into a Second Division force and Black helped the club to the Second Division title in 1924-1925.
Black later played a key role as part of the team which finished in the club"s highest ever league finish of runners-up in the First Division in 1928-1929.
Despite playing 557 times for Leicester, he only managed to score 4 times. Three of his goals were penalties and the other a bizarre 60 yard free-kick against Sunderland in 1933, which Black accidentally over hit.
A suite at Leicester"s home ground, the King Power Stadium, is named in his honour. All-Time Leading League Appearance Maker: 528 games.
