Despite suffering relegation with Yeovil Town in the 2014/15 season, Sam Foley secured six of the Somerset club’s eight post-season awards – including the Player of the Season award - making his acquisition on a free transfer a coup for the club. The attacking midfielder - who can also play on the left-hand side of midfield - played 45 games and scored twice in League One for the Glovers.
As well as spending three years with Yeovil, the 28-year-old also enjoyed spells at Shrewsbury Town, Newport County, Kidderminster Harriers and Cheltenham Town making 196 appearances and scoring 24 goals.
Foley made his first Vale appearance against Crewe Alexandra at the start of the 2015/16 season. He bagged his first goal for the club from the penalty spot in the final minute of a 2-2 draw with Swindon Town at the County Ground.
