Barnsley striker Shaun Tuton was named in the Port Vale reserve side that took on Doncaster Rovers on Tuesday afternoon.
Tuton will be well-known to manager Neil Aspin as he was signed by Aspin for FC Halifax Town where he drew comparisons with Jamie Vardy.
26 year-old Tuton scored eleven goals in 32 games for Halifax which was enough to attract the attention of Barnsley for whom he signed in 2016.
Tuton has also had loan spells with Grimsby Town and Barrow.
The Valiants could be in the market for a new striker in the January transfer window. Both Anton Forrester and Tyrone Barnett have had spells out with injury as has loanee Rekeil Pyke.
Vale reserves won the game 6-0 with Tuton scoring in the 51st minute.
