ALEX Reid ad­mits he is aim­ing to fol­low in the foot­steps of Jamie Vardy af­ter ink­ing pro­fes­sional terms with Fleet­wood.

The 21-year-old striker has signed from Rushall Olympic and cites both Vardy, 29, and current Cod Army striker Ashley Hunter, 21, as an in­spi­ra­tion, af­ter the duo made the jump to High­bury Sta­dium from Non-League.

“See­ing Jamie Vardy and peo­ple like Ash Hunter and where they have come from, it just proves to me that it is pos­si­ble,” said Reid.

“I will work as hard as I can to get to the lev­els that Jamie Vardy has set for every­body now.”
