William Lacey transferred to Everton

May 30, 1908
Everton’s fondness for Irish footballers would seem to be on he increase. In addition to William Scott and Val Harris, the Toffees have now booked William Lacey, the Shelbourne left winger, of whom report speaks highly. There is this to be said, that if Lacey possesses any talent it will probably be quickly developed at Everton. With Harold Hardman retiring and Jimmy Settle gone, Everton have much need to strengthen their left wing. Lacey is said to be able to play either at outside or inside left.
