He made his debut in senior local football at the age of 17 with Floriana FC in 1949. His fine dribbling on the left wing and crosses to the strikers contributed in no small measures to the Greens’ five league championships in the early 1950s.
He won F.A.Trophy and Cassar Cup medals during his days with Floriana FC and then moved on to play with Vittoriosa Stars in 1955. He stayed there two seasons before joining Hibernians with whom he played until 1963 winning the Cassar Cup, an F.A.Trophy and the club’s first ever league title in 1960-1961.
Better known in local football circles as Ċikku n-Nagħġa, he played four times with the national team before retiring in 1964 after moving shortly to play with Ħamrun Spartans. His brothers Raymond Xuereb and George Xuereb both played with [[Floriana FC] and the national team.
He died on 17 February 2003 at the age of 71.
