Sentinel: Hednesford Town land Port Vale favourite Louis Dodds

Recommended Posts

A little sad in some ways as he's only 31 and should be capable of doing a job in League 2. Was never blessed with pace. He never found a way to consistently influence games over a run of matches. Good finisher and decent ability. In many ways a slightly wasted talent. No team ever quite found a way to quite get the best out of him.

He's 33 according to Wiki.

Several bad career moves in a row. Had a decent first season at Shrews but then, out of sentimentality/locality, chose to return to Vale when we played turgid football under Aspin and had no place for a creative player like him.

Then, Chesterfield who imploded and went down.

Then Chorley who took a pasting every week.

He was at Chesterfield before Vale.

Chesterfield and Chorley seemed like decent enough moves at the time, but disaster was around the corner for both clubs

Marmite player but I liked him. Not sure what’s gone wrong or if he’s lost his mojo - should really be playing at league two level if raw ability was the only factor.

His best era for Vale in my view were our seasons in league 1. I thought he looked good and was effective after looking too lightweight in league 2.
