Time at club: 2010, 2011-2015, 2017-
Powerful forward Tom Pope first joined his boyhood club on loan from Rotherham United. He scored his first goals in a televised win over Bradford City and subsequently joined the Valiants on a permanent basis in the summer of 2011.
He enjoyed a mercurial rise in 2012 as he finished as the league’s top scorer with 33 goals and was named League Two player of the season.
The following season he adapted well to League One as he finished top-scorer with 16 goals and picked up a second, successive player of the season award.
In 2014-15 he struggled with injuries but still managed to finish as top-scorer with 12 goals. However, in the summer Vale could only afford to offer him a reduced contract and he instead opted to move to rivals Bury ending a four and a half year stay at the club.
In the summer of 2017 he ended his two-year spell at Bury and rejoined the Valiants for a third spell. After a prolific spell he was named the League Two player of the month for October 2017 and was crowned the club’s player of the year for a record third time.
