Tommy McLaren player profile:
Tommy McLaren was a long-serving Port Vale midfielder who was signed from Berwick Rangers in 1967.
He soon became a fans’ favourite with energetic performances in midfield and was a member of the 1969-1970 promotion side plus voted player of the year in 1971.
He was loaned to Portman Timbers in the summer of 1975 and returned to Vale Park before being released two years later in 1977.
Tragically, McLaren was found dead in his car shortly two months after being released by the club.
