Born in Tasmania, Moysey debuted for Melbourne as a 19-year-old in 1893. He was originally scheduled to return to his school team midway through the season but his schoolmates convinced him to stay with the senior side. The next year he was selected to play for Victoria against South Australia.

An early exponent of the handball, Moysey was often criticised during his career for overusing the technique.

In 1896 he was moved to Western Australia with David Christy, but returned in July and played three seasons of VFL football for the club.

He eventually did go to Western Australia in 1900 after being employed at a gold mine. He stayed there until 1906 when he moved to the city and joined Perth as captain. He later joined Subiaco.

In the 1907/1908 cricket season he played for Western Australia against the English MCC when they toured Australia. In 1910 he was lucky not to drown on Rottnest Island. The man who saved him received an award from the Humane Society.

Moysey represented the VFL against a Ballarat League side in 1897.
