Born in Small Heath, Birmingham, he played for local club Birmingham Excelsior before signing for Small Heath in 1888. A defensive wing half with strong tackling, he went on to make 155 appearances in the FA Cup, Football Alliance and the Football League for the club in the early days of its history. He helped the club to the inaugural Football League Second Division championship in 1893 and promotion to the First Division the following year. In 1896 he moved to Burton Wanderers; playing against them in the 1888 FA Cup, he scored four goals in Small Heath's 9–0 win, as did his brother Will.
He came from a footballing family; brother Will played for Small Heath and several other Midlands clubs, and other brothers Jack, Harry and Bob also played for Aston Villa. Devey died in Birmingham aged about 84. Another brother, Abel, was a cricketer with Staffordshire.
