Cyril Gilhespy was a winger who played in 19 First Division games for Liverpool in the 1920's, spread over four seasons.
Billy Lacey was the established outside-right when the club won the League title in 1921-22 and he only missed three matches that season with Gilhespy stepping in on two of those occasions.
Lacey missed a number of games in the middle of the following season when Liverpool also finished in first place, but the 10 matches Gilhespy figured in were not enough to qualify him for a championship medal.
Even though Lacey was still at the club, Gilhespy was selected for the opening four league fixtures of the 1923-24 season but then lost his place and only played once more that season and just twice the following season, the last of his 19 league appearances coming at Sheffield United on March 16, 1925.
Gilhespy was a vital part of the Bristol City team that won promotion to Second Division in the 1926-27 season, but after less than stellar progress by the club at this level he moved to First Division Blackburn Rovers.
Gilhespy wasn't first choice at Rovers and went on a transfer merry-go-round where he never stayed more than 12 months at each club.
