Signed on amateur forms as an 18-year-old in 1938 from his local club, Chudleigh, Sutherley played in the last nine matches of the 1938-39 season, making his debut at Aldershot in April 1939. He also scored once in a 1-1 draw at home to Queen’s Park Rangers. He played all 3 games in the aborted 1939/40 season for Exeter, and 5 games for Torquay United in the war time football leagues in the same year.

He did, however, play two games for Exeter in 1945-46 in the Third Division South (South of the Thames).

After his demob, Sutherley signed for Penzance in 1948 and played for them for several seasons, ending his career as a left-back. Whilst living in and playing for Penzance he also became a prominent cricketer for the local club. He was still with them for the 1957-58 season.
