Matt Lacey is a central
midfielder who played for Norwich's reserves against Portmsouth
in May 2005. Along with Alex Hill
and Sean Burden, Matt was called up to
provide cover as Norwich didn't wish to risk players they needed
for their final games in the Premiership.
Matt played for both
the Norfolk and Suffolk county representative sides, and for Bury
and Easton College football academies, and had spells with both
Southend and Ipswich's youth teams. He had been with Crewe Alexandra
before his family moved to Norfolk.
Moving to the USA on a soccer scholarship at Lees-McRae College,
Winthrop University, he won the following awards: NSCAA First
Team All American, NSCAA First Team All Region, CC First Team
All Conference, First Team All State, Big South First Team All
Conference, College Soccer News and Soccer America Team of Week.
He has played for the Richmond Kickers and Fredericksburg Gunners
in the USA, coaching for the latter.
He is currently Director of Player Development for Chesterfield
United Football Club in Richmond, Virginia.
