Switching between forward and defence, Arnold first came to prominence in the 1946 reserves semi final, where after four senior games during the year the centre-half back was touted as having a bright footballing future.

Breaking into the senior side, Arnold played as centre-half forward in the 1948 premiership side and topped the team goalkicking.

Later in his career he played as a defender and was Best and Fairest runner-up in 1950 and 1951. At the end of 1954, a game short of his 150 game milestone, he accepted an offer to cross to the Wimmera League and coach Stawell.

Played for a VFL representative team against the Riverina League in 1951.
