Where are they now: Jordan Slew

The striker has had something of a journeyman career since his brief spell at Vale Park…

Prior to Vale

Slew rose to prominence after rising through the Sheff Utd youth ranks to make the first-team. He was snapped up by Premier League Blackburn Rovers for £1m in 2011.

His Vale spell

Signed by Micky Adams, who had managed him at Sheff Utd, in the summer of 2014 Slew scored his first goal in September but after getting a red card against Fleetwood he rarely made the first-team again. He returned to Blackburn in January 2015.

Vale games: 9 Vale goals: 2

Post Vale

Soon after departing Vale, Slew left Blackburn to join Cambridge on an 18 month contract. However, the spell was not a success and he left the club with six months remaining on the deal. He then had a brief spell with Chesterfield before he signed for Plymouth Argyle when he enjoyed reasonable success with six goals as Argyle won promotion. He then had a spell with Rochdale before dropping out of the league to join current club Chester where he lines up alongside former Valiants John McCombe and Kingsley James.
