Lloyd Irish

Goalkeeper

Competitive Debut: 29/11/2008 v AFC Hayes (H), Southern League

First game for the Peacocks: As above

Lloyd is the club’s current longest-serving player, having made his debut as far back as 2008. He had risen through the youth ranks at Yeovil Town, making an unused sub appearance in a Carling Cup tie at Middlesbrough in August 2008, before linking up with the Peacocks in November later that year. He spent two seasons at the Cygnet Health Care Stadium, during which time he won the Supporters’ Player of the Year award in 2009. He then moved on to Conference South club Weston-super-Mare in 2010 where he spent four seasons as first choice keeper, including a run of 119 consecutive games. Lloyd spent a loan period at Tiverton Town during 2013-14 before leaving Weston in the summer of 2014 to join Bideford. However, his stay in North Devon was short-lived and he re-signed for the Peacocks in October 2014.

Since his return he has been a virtual ever-present, making 239 consecutive appearances from his first game back until missing several matches during 2018-19 and accumulating 370 Peacock appearances in all up to the end of the 2020-21 season. His popularity saw him pick up the Players’ Player of the Year award in 2015-16, the season which saw him score his only goal for the Peacocks with a downfield punt against North Leigh to win the game. He retained the Players’ Player award the following season when he also scooped the Supporters’ Player of The Year accolade.
