Devine played for Rhyl until joining Chester in 1955, with goalkeeper John Griffiths making the same move. But whereas Griffiths was to make more than 50 league appearances for the club, Devine was to be restricted to a solitary first team outing. It came on 30 March 1956 in a 2–0 home win over Halifax Town, with Devine wearing the number seven shirt in place of regular George Allman.
