Comments:

A commanding and long-serving centre-half who was the nephew of Vale great Roy Sproson.

He was a member of the 1982-1983, 1985-1986 and 1988-1989 promotion teams but his Vale career was cruelly interrupted by a career-threatening injury as the team closed on promotion in 1989.

He retired through injury until Vale accepted a payment of £50,000 from Birmingham in lieu of an insurance payment for Sproson to resume his career.

He played 12 games for the Blues before injuries finally ended his career.
