Yeovil Town are now deep into pre-season and with the real action just around the corner the squad is taking shape.

The Glovers added another defender this week in Alex Lacey and in order to get to know him… it’s time for FIVE FACTS on the former Luton man.

1) Alexander Lawrence Lacey is a 22-year old central defender signed from Luton Town who put him on the transfer list at the end of the 2014/15 season.

2) Lacey has been at Luton throughout his whole career progressing through their youth system, making his first team debut in December 2010 – aged just 16.

3) He is equally capable in the centre of midfield having spent four spells away from Luton on loan at Cambridge City, Thurrock, Eastbourne Borough and Eastleigh.

4) As recently as last summer, Sky Sports linked Lacey with Bournemouth, Charlton and Millwall. John Still named Lacey Luton captain for pre-season as a challenge for him to step up and improve his communication.

5) Lacey has been very highly rated at Kenilworth Road and joins Yeovil Town with a Conference Title Winners Medal in his suitcase following over 50 appearances with the Hatters.

You can welcome Lacey to Somerset by tweeting him at @AlexLacey24 or by coming along to see him in action.
