At the age of 16, Vardy began his youth career playing for Sheffield Wednesday. However, Vardy was dropped by the club for not being good enough. This discouraged Vardy so much that he decided to give up on his dream of becoming a professional footballer. Vardy also had to move out of the parent’s house due to constant quarrels with his parents. He soon joined a football team, Stockbridge Park from 2003–2007, and worked off jobs in order to sustain himself.

The forward, released by Sheffield Wednesday's academy as a teenager, started playing for Stockbridge for £30-a-game along with hard work in a carbon fiber factory at an age of 20 years. Hours of work in a factory and then training for football matches isn’t easy for a footballer isn’t an easy task but the thing that drives a man for all this is PASSION.

It soon became visible that Fleetwood was just another step for the prolific forwards bright future, now earning £850 a week. He scored 31 goals and guided the Lancashire team into the Football League for the first time. At that time scouts from the top league teams were visiting Lancashire in search of prolific players. Their mission to reach the League complete, Fleetwood sold Vardy to Leicester City in May 2012. The fee was £1m, potentially rising to £1.7m, and a non-league record.

This was the start of a long professional career in English league football for Jamie Vardy. But as e say good things takes time.

But it was far from a dream start. The striker struggled for form and, after criticism from fans, even considered quitting football at the end of his first season at the club. That shows life is very hard sometimes that you eventually lose all hope in just a matter of time.

Leicester city were playing in the Championship (2nd tier football in England) for fourth season running in 2012. Vardy scored mere 4 goals in that season which were much less than expected. But coaches at Leicester kept faith in Vardy and club didn’t sold vardy after poor start.

But next season brought the luck to Jamie as he scored 16 goals in the 2013-14 season that guided Leicester back to the Premier League as champions and we all know the rest of the story.

After promotion in the top tier of English football it was task for Jamie Vardy to keep his goal scoring form and save his side from relegation. But top tier also brings top level difficulties along with it as Leicester city were fighting relegation battle for most of the 2014/15 season and Jamie scored only 5 goals in that critical season that raised some doubts over his abilities.

After such disappointing season I think Jamie Vardy or any man at Leicester had never imagined what was waiting for them in next season. A year after narrowly avoiding relegation, the Foxes beat all the odds to win the Premier League title.

The Miraculous Season in the history of English Football

As the season was about to start on JULY 13, 2015 Claudio Ranieri is appointed as the manager of Leicester City. It was a surprise choice by his new club’s Thai ownership group. Shortly after being hired, he states that his goal for the club is to reach 40 points, which is generally regarded as the minimum total needed to avoid relegation. That showed that club were not even have thought in their wild dreams that they are going to have the best season in premier league history.

On AUG. 8, 2015 as the season started for Jamie vardy and Leicester city, in the first game of the new season, Leicester beats Sunderland, 4-2, with two goals from Riyad Mahrez (who signed with the Foxes in 2014, when the club was in the second division) and one from Jamie Vardy. This was a good start to an extraordinary season.

At the end of November, vardy had scored in his 11th consecutive game for Leicester city and set a new record. At that time Leicester city were sitting at 2nd place in the league and at the start of New Year level at 1st position with arsenal.

But as the season goes on Jamie vardy kept scoring goals and started cementing his club position at the top. Tottenham hotspurs were fighting the title race with Leicester city at the end.

On MAY 2, 2016 Leicester City missed a chance to clinch the title outright when it tied, 1-1, at Manchester United on May 1. But when Chelsea fought back to tie Tottenham, 2-2, just over 24 hours later, the deal was done. Leicester led Spurs in the standings by 7 points with two matches to go, meaning the Foxes could not be caught. Needless to say, Leicester City players and fans, celebrated vigorously.

His transfer value went up from £2 million to about £18 million. At the end of the season, he won the FWA Footballer of the Year, Barclays Premier League Player of the Season and was named in the PFA Team of the Year.
