     Home | Football | Ted Sagar

Edward "Ted" Sagar (7 February 1910 - 16 October 1986) played football for Everton and England.

He was known as a fearless goalkeeper of great ability. He was quite light in an era when goalkeepers were barged into more often than today. He joined Everton as an apprentice in 1929 after playing for Thorne Colliery in Yorkshire and made in debut in 1930. He played in the championship winning sides of 1931-32 and 1938-39 and the FA Cup winning side of 1933.

He made 499 appearances for Everton; this goalkeeping record for the club was only beaten by Neville Southall in 1994.

He retired from playing in 1952 and ran a pub in Aintree. He died in October 1986, aged 76.

Sagar played four times for England, as well as once for Northern Ireland during the war.
