PersonalFullname: Tom (Thomas?) Lally
Signed: 15 August 1970
International Caps: 0
International Goals: 0
Irish goalkeeper picked up from Sligo Rovers in 1970 to understudy Evan Williams. Lally began his career with Galway Bohemians, West United and Galway Hibernian before signing for Sligo in 1968.
He never played in the first team, but featured in the ridiculously strong reserve side of the period. Tom is believed to have spent time on loan to Morton, before heading back across the Irish Sea in October 1971. Celtic famously signed numerous keepers under Jock Stein and competition for a place was tough.
Tom then enjoyed a long career in the Irish League, including spells playing for and managing his home town club.
Answered an SOS to come out retirement and don the gloves for Sligo Rovers in 1987/88.
