Casey, D





Biographical Text

D Casey appeared as a guest for Exeter City during 1945/46 when two interim league competitions - Division Three South (South of Thames) [played until Christmas] and the Division Three South Cup (Southern Section) [played from January] - were organised ahead of a return to ‘normal’ league football in 1946/47. 

Stationed locally with the Royal Navy, he played three times for Exeter City as a guest player during the 1945/46 season. Scoring twice on his debut against Swindon Town in August 1945 in a Division Three South (South of the Thames) match, he appeared in the return fixture the following week as well as in a friendly against the Holding Battalion of Royal Marines in January 1946.

D. Casey is David Casey, who would later play at Ashton United, where I am club historian; his playing career after being de-mobbed consisted of spells at Mossley (46-47; 45 games - 22 goals), Ashton United (47-48; 25-2), Stalybridge Celtic, Droylsden & Hyde United. He was known as Bill whilst playing at Mossley, reason unknown - I am fairly sure this is the David Casey born in Oldham in 1920 but cannot definitively prove this to be the case.
