Biographical Text

Gaskell played local football for Waterloo United and also for his regimental team that won three medals.

Whilst in the Army he put in a few appearances with Grimsby Town in the Midland League, but after being demobbed, he returned to his home town and played for Ashton National.

The Ashton team were then members of the Manchester Amateur League, but in 1920-21 switched to the Cheshire County League. It was from Ashton that he signed for Exeter City in June 1921.

Making his Grecians debut against Charlton Athletic at St James’ Park in September 1921, Gaskell only remained at St James’ Park for one season, before making the short move to Torquay United.
