Biographical Text

Formerly an amateur with Portsmouth, Lightly was signed on professional forms by Exeter City in June 1957.

He was to feature in the opening four Third Division South fixtures against Southend United, Brentford (home and away) and Brighton & Hove Albion.

They were to be the only league matches that he played in, and by December 1957 had started National Service with the Hampshire Regiment.

Lightly returned to Exeter in November 1959 on completion of his National Service, but only as a part time professional.

Two months later his contract with the Grecians was cancelled by mutual consent. In 2009 he was living in Derbyshire.
