Clipping Heroes #18: Signings from abroad

Clipping Heroes #18: Signings from abroad

This season has seen the highest number of foreign signings ever seen at Vale Park. Our retrospective series takes a look at photos of foreign signings from yesteryear…

So, who’s that player at the top of the page? Well, that will be French striker Christophe Horlaville pictured in action against Oxford United. It was one of just two appearances he made for Vale.

Please note: This is by no means an exhaustive list but rather a collection of images we have in our archives. Some players such as Stephane Zubar, Mo Coulibally etc do not feature simply because we have no image of them…

So how about some more strikers? There’s…

viljanen

Finnish striker Ville Viljanen.

nguessan

French striker Dany N’Guessan.

campion

French striker Achille Campion.

Trinidad and Tobago forward Tony Rougier.

And moving into defence…

You can make a pretty strong Vale XI out of those foreign signings… let’s hope this summer’s signings prove their worth in a Vale shirt too…
