ReadingEdit

Born in Bracknell, Berkshire,[2] Stacey began his career with the youth system at Reading as an eight-year-old in 2004,[3][4] before signing his first professional contract with the club on 10 December 2013 until the end of 2015–16.[5] He made his professional debut as a 90th-minute substitute for Jake Taylor in a 1–0 victory at home to Ipswich Town on 16 August 2014 and finished 2014–15 with six appearances.[6] Stacey signed a new contract with Reading on 19 October 2015 to keep him at the club until the summer of 2019.[7][8]

On 23 November 2015, Stacey joined League Two club Barnet on a short-term loan until 26 December.[9] He debuted a day later in a 4–2 defeat away to Notts County and completed the loan spell with only two appearances.[10] On 24 March 2016, Stacey joined League Two club Carlisle United on loan until the end of 2015–16.[11] He made his debut a day later in a 0–0 draw away to Yeovil Town and scored his first goal in the following match, a 3–2 victory at home to Bristol Rovers.[10] His second goal for Carlisle came on 19 April against Luton Town, when he scored a consolation goal in the 61st minute to make the score 2–1 and completed the loan spell with nine appearances and two goals.[10]

On 31 August 2016, Stacey joined League Two club Exeter City on loan until 23 January 2017.[4] He debuted three days later in a 3–2 victory away to Colchester United.[12] His loan was extended until the end of 2016–17 on 23 January 2017, having made 19 appearances for Exeter up to that point in the season.[13] He played in both legs of the play-off semi-final victory over his former loan club Carlisle United, scoring a stoppage time winner in the second leg to make the score 6–5 on aggregate.[14][15] Stacey started in the 2017 EFL League Two play-off Final at Wembley Stadium on 28 May 2017, in which Exeter lost 2–1 to Blackpool.[16] He completed the loan spell with 38 appearances and one goal.[12]
