He joined Bristol City as a youth player and was their number one goalkeeper in the early 1970s despite starting his career as a fullback. He made his debut for Bristol City against Southampton in the FA Cup in 1970. In the 1975–76 season, City were promoted to the First Division but Cashley lost his place to John Shaw soon afterwards and had only brief spells in the side for the remainder of his time with City. Cashley even scored a goal for City on 18 September 1973, with a long clearance from his own penalty area against Hull City on a gusty night. In total, he made 262 appearances, 227 of those in the league for The Robins.
In August 1982 he returned to professional football with Bristol Rovers, who he made 53 league appearances for. He then played for Trowbridge Town before again returning to The Football League when he joined Chester City in October 1985. Cashley made nine appearances as City were promoted from Division Four at the end of the season.
After Chester, City came calling yet again, offering Cashley a role in the reserves, albeit without a contract. He would be able to step in to play for City if Keith Waugh was unable and Cashley jumped at the chance for full-time football once again.
