He signed for Gresley Rovers in August 1919 switching to outside-right and also played several games as a pro for Leicester City reserves during 1920/21 winning a Senior Cup medal.

Emmanuel joined Burton All Saints in 1921, Coalville Swifts again in 1922, Ibstock Colliery a year later, and Stableford's Works in February 1925.
