Club Career

Club(s) Began his career as a centre-half in his schoolboy days. Turned to goalkeepeing in the Doncaster Senior League for Thorne Colliery FC. He had  unsuccessful trials with Bradford FC and Hull City AFC in November 1928. But it was Everton FC, after two trials with the Central League side (the first against Stockport County FC on 9 March, the second against Manchester United FC on 16 March 1929), that signed him on 21 March, for a small 'consideration fee' in the September. He appeared for the Royal Corps divisional teams during the war. On 6 May 1950, Sagar was chosen to play against Manchester City FC, the last game of the season, his 430th league appearance, thus breaking the record held by Liverpool FC's Elisha Scott (His previous league appearance came the previous Christmas). With it came his retirement, however, he was retained and after a record number of 466 league appearances, on 1 May 1953, Everton FC appointed him to their training staff instead of retaining him as a player. On 12 August that year, he was awarded with a 1000 cheque for his 24 years of unbroken service, as well as receiving three benefits throughout his career.
Club honours Football League Division Two winners 1930-31; Division One winners 1931-32, 1938-39; FA Cup winners 1932-33; FA Charity Shield winners 1932, runners-up 1933;
Individual honours Football League (five appearances)
Distinctions His 24 years at Goodison Park constitutes the longest period any professional has spent at a single league club.
