Herbert Ernest Saxon Bertie Cordey “Bertie” or “Bert” Lyon (1877–unknown) was an English association footballer. Although predominantly an inside forward or centre forward, Mosborough-born Lyon played in most positions throughout his career. He never stayed at the same club for more than two consecutive seasons; during his career he played for Overseal Town, Gresley Rovers, Leicester Fosse, Nelson, Watford, Reading, West Ham United, Brighton & Hove Albion, Swindon Town, Carlisle United, Blackpool, Walsall and Tredegar.
At Leicester Fosse, Lyon once played an entire Football League First Division match as a stand-in goalkeeper, even managing to keep a clean sheet in the process. After a season at Nelson, of the Lancashire League, Lyon moved south to Hertfordshire, to play for Southern League First Division side Watford. He finished the 1901–02 season as the Hornets ’ leading scorer, with fourteen goals from 32 appearances; however, he departed at the end of the season. Indeed, between 1901 and 1909, he spent precisely one season at a club before moving on; namely Watford (1901–02), Reading (1902–03), West Ham (1903–04), Brighton & Hove Albion (1904–05), Swindon Town (1905–06 and 1907–08), Carlisle United (1906–07) and Blackpool (1908–1909) Walsall.
