Born in Birmingham, Timmins signed for Birmingham City before the Second World War. However, his registration papers were lost after heavy bombing in the Birmingham area. In the summer of 1948, Timmins signed for Coventry City.
Timmins had given up hope of pursuing a career in top flight football and was playing for non-league Jack Moulds Athletic in Birmingham when Coventry manager Harry Storer turned up unannounced at the Timmins family home and persuaded him to sign for Coventry City. Timmins spent 11 years at Coventry, including three years as club captain. He played a total of 165 games (161 in the Football League) and scored five goals before leaving the Sky Blues to join Leamington F.C. in 1959, aged 37.
