Mickey Lill (3 August 1936 - October 2004) was an Englishmarker footballer who played in the Football League for Wolverhampton Wanderers, Everton, Plymouth Argyle and Portsmouth.

He began as a trainee at Londonmarker non-league club Storey Athletic before being spotted by West Ham United. However, he left for then-Champions Wolverhampton Wanderers in 1954 still as an apprentice.

The winger made his first team debut on 7 December 1957, scoring in a 2-1 win at Preston North End. However, he did not feature again that season as Wolves won the league title for a second time. He really broke through at Molineuxmarker in the following campaign as the club successfully retained the League Championship, making 18 appearances and scoring 12 goals.

Their league triumph gave Lill the chance to appear in the European Cup during the 1959/60 season, but he still found himself on the sidelines often and left for Everton in early 1960.

He played for two full seasons at Everton as the club twice finished in the top five. He was sold in the summer of 1962 to Second Division Plymouth Argyle. After a solitary season with the Pilgrims, he moved along the South coast to fellow second tier club Portsmouth.

After three seasons at Fratton Parkmarker, Lill left English football to join Germiston Callies in South Africa. He soon became coach of the club after retiring from playing and eventually worked as a PE teacher just outside Johannesburgmarker.

He died after a battle against cancer in October 2004, aged 68.
