Stats
Jim Arnold was noted for his highly intelligent positional ability. He made 165 league appearances in a seventeen-year career in the Football League.

He arrived in the professional game in 1979, at the late age of 29, when he signed with Blackburn Rovers. Two years, one promotion out of the Third Division, and 58 league appearances later, he moved on to Everton.

He spent four years as Everton's back-up keeper during one of the most glittering periods in the Club's history, as the Blues won the First Division title and the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup.

He was loaned out to Preston North End during the 1982–83 campaign, and signed with Port Vale in August 1985, with Bobby Mimms arriving as his replacement as back-up to Neville Southall.

Arnold was voted Port Vale's Player of the Year in 1985–86 but announced his retirement from full-time football in November 1986. He did though later turn out for non-league sides Kidderminster Harriers, Rocester and Workington.
