Stocksbridge Park Steels to name stand after Leicester striker Jamie Vardy

Stocksbridge Park Steels plan to name a stand after Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy.

Stocksbridge were Vardy's first club.

The EvoStik League team are expected to rubberstamp the proposal at their main committee meeting next week in honour of the local youngster who spent seven years with them before going on to hit the big time.

Chairman Allen Bethell said: "Jamie played with us for a long time. He was in the reserves for three years and when he got called up for the first team, he missed the first training session because he was a bit frightened."
