Steve Brooker player profile:
Striker Steve Brooker was originally signed by Port Vale on loan from Watford in 2001 before the move was made permanent the following month for £15,000. The forward had been spotted by then Port Vale coach Martin Foyle.
Brooker quickly became a first-team choice thanks to his intelligent link-up play and goal threat.
The highlight of his spell in Burslem came when he scored the winner in the 2001 LDV Vans Trophy final win over Brentford at the Millennium stadium.
In 2004, his contract was due to expire and despite Chairman Bill Bratt claiming the player was not for sale, nevertheless he was sold to Bristol City for a £225,000 fee in September.
He later had spells with Doncaster Rovers and Buxton before retiring from playing.
