He spent most of his career at The Dell in the reserves and made his solitary first-team appearance at Northampton Town on 6 April 1907 when Sam Jepp was taken ill shortly before kick-off. Dyer played at inside-right with Frank Jefferis moving to the left and Wally Radford moving into the centre-forward position. The match finished 4–2 to Southampton, with two goals from Radford and one each from Patten and Mouncher.
Dyer remained with the "Saints" until September 1908 playing reserve-team football. He then briefly joined Gainsborough Trinity of The Football League, but returned to Hampshire within a month and was taken on by Eastleigh Athletic, whom he helped win the Hampshire Senior Cup in 1909.
Dyer then moved between various local clubs until his football career was ended by the First World War.
