Time at club: 1988-1990
A veteran striker who was signed for £35,000 from Barnsley and played a key role in Vale’s 1988-1989 promotion.
Futcher’s experience also arguably helped develop strike partner Darren Beckford into a potent forward.
Futcher was used more sparingly following the club’s promotion and was sold to Burnley for £60,000.
