Cult Hero 11: David Lowe

David Lowe is one of a select number of players to have not one, but two successful loan spells with the Valiants.

Name: David Lowe
Cult credentials: Two loan spells, popular, intelligent striker
Time at Vale: 1992 and 1994
Appearances: 27
Goals: 7

Vale’s first spell with Vale was in 1992 when he was loaned from Ipswich Town and scored twice in nine games.

He proved a popular signing and was almost certainly watched closely by John Rudge, who would have viewed him as a valuable long term signing.

An intelligent, ball-playing forward, Lowe played 575 times in a long career…

But at the end of the season, Lowe moved from Ipswich to Leicester City for £250,000, a price that was then out of Vale’s price range.

So Vale signed him on loan for a second spell in 1994 and this time he netted five times in nineteen games.

An intelligent, ball-playing forward, Lowe played 575 times in a long career, scoring 137 times.

Now a respected coach, he has had spells at Wigan Athletic and Derby County.
