Playing career

Massey started his career with Millwall where he was an FA Youth Cup winner in 1979 after a 2–0 victory over Manchester City. The "Lions" finished 16th in the Third Division in 1980–81 and then ninth in 1981–82 under Peter Anderson's stewardship. Millwall finished 17th in 1982–83 and ninth again in 1983–84, and Massey played in the 3–2 victory over Lincoln City at Sincil Bank in the 1983 League Group Cup final. However, he fell out of favour with new manager George Graham. He was sent out to John Rudge's Port Vale on a one-month loan deal in March 1984. He played four Third Division games and scored a goal in 3–2 defeat to Rotherham United at Vale Park on 2 April. After returning to The Den he was involved in a swap deal which saw him join Aldershot and Les Briley go the other way. Ron Harris's "Shots" finished 13th in the Fourth Division in 1984–85, and then 16th in 1985–86 under Len Walker's stewardship. Massey scored three goals in 71 league games during his two years at the Recreation Ground. He later moved on to a handful of non-league sides, including: Fisher Athletic, Bromley (on loan) and Erith & Belvedere.
