Who was Stanley Chesney?

Stanley “Stan” Chesney was a U.S. soccer goalkeeper. He played in both the first and second American Soccer League and is a member of the National Soccer Hall of Fame.

According to the National Soccer Hall of Fame, Chesney signed with the Bayonne Rovers when he was seventeen. At some point, he also played for Babcock and Wilcox. However, there are no records of these teams competing in the mid to late 1920s. At some point, he signed with the New York Americans of the first American Soccer League. He saw time in three games with the Americans during the fall 1931 ASL season. Chesney remained with the Americans for the rest of his career. In 1933, they fell to Stix, Baer and Fuller F.C. in the final of the National Challenge Cup. In 1937, they won the cup over St. Louis Shamrocks. The Americans also won the 1936 ASL championship. At some point in the mid-1940s, Chesney may have retired as he came out of retirement in 1948 to rejoin the New York Americans
