Gascoigne was signed from Scotswood in May 1921 and was effective cover for
Harry Sherwin. Anxious for more first-team opportunities, he moved to Doncaster
Rovers in June 1924, scoring three times in fifty-five appearances, and became
their captain. He left for Bradford City in March 1926 and ran a business in
Bradford. He scored once in twenty-one League appearances while at Valley Parade.
He joined Tranmere Rovers in September 1927, but did not play for their first
team. He played twice for Cheshire League side, Hurst, making his debut at home
to Hyde United on 4th October 1930 and his second and final game was away to the
same team, three weeks later. He died in 1991.
