Casey joined United’s ground-staff and was signed in October 1960. He made his first-team debut at the age of seventeen, in place of the injured Eric Smith. His career with Leeds was ended after receiving serious injuries in a car accident in April 1962. Norman Hunter, who was in the car with other Leeds players, readily admits his good fortune to come out of the accident unscathed. He describes the incident as follows, “One night Terry Casey and I had arranged to go out with Alan Humphreys, a goalkeeper and the proud owner of a car. When he arrived, Casey and I raced each other to grab the front passenger seat and, needless to say, as I was not the fastest runner, I lost. So I had to squeeze into the back with John Hawksby and Noel Peyton. It was foggy as we drove along Elland Road and suddenly Alan was yanking the steering wheel to the right to avoid a lorry across the road.The car skidded and slammed sideways into it. Poor Terry took the full brunt of the smash. The car just folded in on him. His injuries were so bad that he nearly died. I couldn’t help thinking that if I had been a little faster, it would have been me in that front passenger seat and me that suffered those life-threatening injuries. Casey, who had just forced his way into the Reserves, eventually recovered and came back but he was never quite the same.” Terry later had a spell with Worcester City in Non-League football.
