Playing Career


Club(s)
Began his footballing career playing with York County Boys and Sheffield Rangers FC, from where he signed into the Sheffield Wednesday FC youth system, but was released. Vardy then played youth football with Stocksbridge Park Steels FC, whilst learning his trade as a medical technician. From 2007, he scored 66 goals in 107 Northern Premier League Division One appearances. In 2009, after a trial with Crewe Alexandra FC did not materialise, and a move to Rotherham United FC failed to happen, FC Halifax Town signed Vardy in June 2010. After 29 goals in 41 Northern Premier League/Conference North appearances, on 26 August 2011, Fleetwood Town FC signed Vardy, and his 31 goals in 36 Conference Premier appearances helped secure the title. On 18 May 2012, Leicester City FC paid £1 million, a non-league record, for Vardy. Although his first season was subdued, his second season helped them win promotion to the Premier League, and his third season, he helped them remain in the top flight. During the 2016 close season, Arsenal FC had made a £22 million bid for Vardy, but he opted to remain with the Premier League Champions.
