Mickey Hamill signed for Manchester United in 1911 and made his debut on 16 September at the Hawthorns against West Bromwich Albion. United, who were managed by Ernest Magnall at the time, lost the match 1-0 in front of 35,000 fans.

Mickey Hamill scored his first goal, of just two, for Manchester United on 29 April 1912 against Blackburn Rovers in a 3-1 win at Old Trafford. It was the last league goal for Manchester United in the 1911/1912 season. Hamill's only other goal for United was in January 1913 in a 4-1 defeat to Everton at Goodison Park.

Hamill only tasted victory once in the green of Ireland beating England 3-0 in his second international match two years after his debut.
