Born in Barreiro, Setúbal District, Quaresma started playing with local F.C. Barreirense in the second division. In the summer of 1936 he moved to the Primeira Liga with C.F. Os Belenenses, where he would remain for the following 13 seasons, working as an electrician after training.
In 1945–46, as the Lisbon-based team won their first and only national championship, Quaresma scored 14 goals in 22 matches. He retired on 5 October 1948 at only 30 years of age, following a game against neighbouring Sporting Clube de Portugal (4–1 home win, two goals), then acted as his main club's coach during the same campaign, leading it to the third position; he worked with the youth sides in the following years.
