Represented the VFL against a Ballarat league side in 1898.

Herring only played two games in 1900 after moving to the Maryborough area, but they were both winning finals - including Melbourne's first premiership. In 1901 he missed the entire season until the last game where secretary Amos Norcott coerced him to come back as a replacement for the ill George Moodie.

In 1902 he moved back to the city to study and was able to play close to a full season for the first time since 1899, as well as playing for Trinity College in a collegiate match.

Herring was also a talented cricketer, playing around Maryborough in 1898 and in the city the next year.
