Jack Tennant started his career as centre forward at amateur side Washington Colliery.
He had been turned into a right full-back by the time he was playing for Torquay United in Division Three from where he was bought to Liverpool. He made his debut for the club in the autumn of the 1933-34 season, making seven consecutive First Division appearances before missing the next 16 matches and then being brought back for another short run of six games in succession. Ernie Blenkinsop started 1934-35 as first-choice left-back and played in the first 16 league fixtures before Tennant replaced him for the remaining 26 games of the season.
He helped consolidate newcomers Bolton in the 1st division in the 1935-6 season and made a total of 105 appearances for the Trotters before the outbreak of WWII.
