10 years ago I was earning £30 a week in 8th tier league: Golden Boot winner Jamie Vardy inspirational message

Jamie Vardy has shared feelings over becoming the oldest player to win the Premier League Golden Boot after finishing the campaign with 23 goals.

"Never in a million years did I ever think I would win a Premier League winners medal let alone the Golden Boot...just wow!" the Leicester City striker tweeted.

"If this proves anything, it shows you should never ever give up on your dreams, no matter how crazy they may seem!"



Vardy's story of success is a truly special one: back in 2005, the Englishman was an 18-year-old factory worker.

Back in 2010, at the age of 23, the striker was playing for Stocksbridge Park Steels in the 8th tier of English football, before moving to Halifax Town for the fee of £15,000.

In 2011, Vardy joined Fleetwood Town from Division 5 and then in 2012, he finally completed a fateful transfer to Leicester.

8 years later, the 33-year-old is a proud England international, a Premier League winner, a Premier League Golden Boot winner, and he has scored over one hundred Premier League goals.
