Simpson started out at Hartlepool United and broke into their first-team as a youngster before Preston lured him to Deepdale in January 2018. He made his debut for the Lilywhites in the same month in a Championship fixture against Aston Villa.

The Lancashire side decided to loan him out to non-league sides Lancaster City and Hyde United to gain some more experience before he was loaned to Carlisle United in the 2018/19 season.

He managed a single goal in eight games for the Cumbrians before moving to Accrington Stanley for the campaign after.
