Time at club: 2017-2019
Sam Hornby player profile:
The young goalkeeper Sam Hornby signed a two-year deal in the summer of 2017. He made his senior debut in the League Cup tie against Leeds Utd in August 2017 when he replaced Rob Lainton.
Hornby then made his full League debut in the 3-2 home defeat to Wycombe Wanderers but lost his place in late August.
In December 2017 he was loaned to Chester before returning to the club and battling back to finish the season as first choice.
Hornby made a handful of appearances in 2018-19, all in the Checkatrade Trophy tournament, as the consistent Scott Brown was selected first-choice, but the youngster’s attitude during reserve games saw Port Vale offer him a new contract in the summer of 2019.
However, he rejected the deal and opted to sign for Bradford City in May 2019.
