Stats
Cyril Lello was a hard-working, no-nonsense half-back, signed from Shrewsbury Town in September of 1947.

The Shropshire-born utility man initially found it difficult to break into the first-team and was restricted to a handful of appearances at inside-left in the latter part of the 1947/48 season.

He then cemented a place at left-half at the beginning of 1949 and was only denied an international call-up after picking up a serious knee injury towards the end of the campaign.

The setback kept Lello out for the whole of the next term and his absence hit the Blues hard as they fell to relegation for just the second time ever.

His influence was highlighted further when, in his first full season back from injury, he helped the Club secure promotion back to the top flight.

Lello made a total of 254 appearances for Everton, scoring nine goals, before he left for Rochdale in November 1956.
