I’M AMAZED NO ONE SNAPPED UP VAUGHAN
WATCHING Kidderminster’s valiant defeat to Sunderland on Saturday, I was reminded of what a solid defender Lee Vaughan is.
I remember watching him emerge at AFC Telford, a young, fearless and brutish right-back who charged around like a tank and, quite often, spent the last ten minutes of a match in the dressing room whilst the red mist cleared.
Judging by his performance on Saturday little has changed, his man-of-the-match performance – including one sensational last- gasp challenge – helping to make Sunderland look distinctly ordinary.
To be frank, seeing Vaughan still playing for Kiddy was a surprise – I assumed he’d have been signed up by a League club by now.
Why he hasn’t, I don’t know. Maybe nobody thought he was quick enough. Maybe managers worried about his temperament.
Whatever the case, at 27, that ship has probably sailed, which is a shame. Because I can’t believe there are 92 better right-backs than Vaughan.
MISSED THE BOAT: Lee Vaughan of Kidderminster
