Horsfield nets Valiants role

21 Jul 2009 - 12:54:46

Port Vale manager Micky Adams has appointed former Birmingham City striker Geoff Horsfield as his assistant.

Horsfield temporarily retired from football last season after being diagnosed with testicular cancer, but made a quick recovery to resume his playing career with Lincoln City.

The former Fulham, Birmingham and West Brom striker was deemed surplus to requirements at Sincil Bank after making 17 appearances.

The 35-year-old, who has netted 126 goals in his career, will be registered as a player next season to provide striking cover for Adams.

"I am looking forward to it, it is something I have always wanted to do," Horsfield told the club's official website.

"From turning 30 I have always wanted to come into the coaching side and Micky Adams has given me the chance to keep on playing.

"I want to play most of the games and Micky is going to teach me the ropes.

"The problems I have encountered over the last 12 months are now behind me.

"Getting cancer was something I had to get over. I got it, wanted to beat it and I did. Now I am just glad that I've got another chance in football," he added.
