Great performance from the lads, never stopped believing. And what a feeling this was my1stgoal
” A Fairy Tale Story ”

No silverspoon, no £300m academy, no 5 year £10m contract at 17, no God given ability – hard work, desire & now he’s having a party

We should be championing people like him in this country to show the kids what you can achieve with hard work instead of these TOWIE idiots

And this kid Vardy is pure gold, worked his balls off through the leagues and now look at him, they will be making a film about him in 20yrs

After being released by Sheffield Wednesday at the age of sixteen, Vardy began his senior career with Stocksbridge Park Steels, breaking into the first team in 2007 and spending three seasons before joining Northern Premier League side F.C. Halifax Town in 2010. Scoring 26 goals in his debut season, he won the club’s “Player’s Player of the Year” award.

He then moved to Conference Premier side Fleetwood Town in August 2011 for an undisclosed fee. He scored 31 league goals in his first season at his new team, winning the team’s “Player of the Year” award as they won the division.

In May 2012, Vardy signed for Leicester City in the Football League Championship for a non-League record transfer fee of £1 million, and represented the club in the Premier League after winning the Championship in 2014. He scored in a record eleven consecutive Premier League matches in 2015, breaking Ruud van Nistelrooy’s record, and made his international debut earlier in the same year.
