Know anyone with a sweet left foot?

Port Vale are holding a ‘Left-Footer Talent Identification Day’ in the hope of adding some talented youngsters to their academy.

The League Two side is on the lookout for left-sided youth players and are giving prospects the opportunity to show what they can do with their left peg at a special recruitment day next month.

Roughly 20 per cent of the world’s population is left-footed and Port Vale must be right-heavy because they are encouraging youngsters with some finesse on their left to send their name, age, school year, address, contact number, height, weight, position, attributes and playing history to [email protected] to apply for the session.

The advertisement on the club’s website reads: “Whatever the reasons, there is something special about left-footed players and Port Vale Academy are looking to recruit more talented left-footed players who could potentially be the next Anthony Gardner, Steve Guppy or Lionel Messi.

“Port Vale are holding a ‘Left-Footer Talent Identification Day’ on Wednesday 17th April 2019 during the Easter half term break 10.00am-12.00pm.

“Our ‘Left-Footer Talent Identification Day’ is free to register, which is aimed at naturally left-footed players between the ages of 7-14 who believe they have the ability or potential to play in Academy football.”
