Debut and only Game (Carlton): Round 19, 1968 v Fitzroy, aged 18 years, 152 days
Carlton Player No. 807
Guernsey No. 15
DOB: 25 March, 1950
Gordon Casey came to Carlton in 1968 from the tiny Mallee township of Speed in north-western Victoria. It was an apt birthplace for the young forward, because after just one game for Carlton in 1968, he was cleared to Footscray. Whilst at the Blues, he was the leading goalkicker in the Reserves for the 1967 and 1968 seasons.
At the Western Oval, Casey found his niche as a tenacious specialist back pocket, and in a fine career, played 125 games for the Bulldogs. He represented Victoria, and later served on Footscray's coaching panel. Casey later coached local team Hoppers Crossing in the WRFL.
