Time at club: 2015-2017
The powerful striker turned down an offer of a contract from Cheltenham Town to agree a deal with the Valiants in August 2015.
The forward began his career at Newcastle United but rose to prominence at Havant and Waterlooville where he netted twenty times in 29 games.
He agreed a two-year contract with Vale and made his debut in the 1-0 JPT win over Carlisle United. He then scored his first senior goal in the 3-1 loss at Millwall.
A strong finish to the season saw him named as the League One player of the month for April after a run of three goals in five games.
In August 2016, he rejoined former manager Rob Page as he went to Northampton Town on loan until January. He left the club in the summer of 2017.
