Cash, a University Blacks recruit, was one of the main forward targets of a weak Hawthorn side in the 1950s. He kicked 26 goals in his debut season, which was enough to top Hawthorn's goal-kicking and included a five-goal haul in a win over Melbourne.

His son, of the same name, is a retired tennis player who won Wimbledon in 1987.[3]
