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 handball, Moysey was often criticised in the press for overusing the technique, but was also considered one of the league's better players. At the end of 1895 a newspaper ranked him the fourth best player in the VFA.

In 1896 Moysey moved to Western Australia along with David Christy, but returned in July and played until the end of 1899. That year he played for Victoria again, but missed three weeks mid-season after cutting his leg with an axe at work. In 1897 he played for a VFL representative side against the Ballarat League.

Moysey returned to Western Australia in 1900 after being employed by a goldmine, he joined Perth in 1906 but retired after injuring his shoulder in the 1907 pre-season. During the 1907/1908 cricket season, Moysey played a first class game for for Western Australia against the touring English MCC. In 1910 he narrowly escaped drowning on Rottnest Island.

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