Leonard John Casey (born 24 May 1931) is an English retired footballer who played as a wing half.

He played non-league football for Barking, playing in the Amateur Cup semi-final, before leaving to undertake his National Service.

On his return in 1952 he joined Leyton before joining Chelsea in 1954.[1] He spent four years at Stamford Bridge, making 34 league appearances.[2] Casey was transferred to Plymouth Argyle in 1958 and made 24 appearances in the club's Third Division title winning campaign.[3][4] He made 20 appearances in the Second Division the following season, but his last two seasons with the club were blighted by injury, with his only two appearances coming in the League Cup, ten months apart. He retired in 1961, having made 48 appearances in all competitions for Argyle.[3][5]
