Moreland was born in Wolverhampton, Staffordshire.

He signed for First Division club Birmingham in the 1938 close season, and made his debut in the opening match of the 1938–39 season, a 2–1 home defeat to Sunderland on 27 August 1938. He kept his place for another couple of games, but played only once after that before moving on to Port Vale in November 1938, where he scored three goals in seven league appearances. He departed after war in Europe broke out, most probably in the autumn of 1939.
