Fleetwood Pub Pay Tribute to Jamie Vardy With ‘Vardy’s Return’ Ale

Fleetwood Pub Pay Tribute to Jamie Vardy With ‘Vardy’s Return’ Ale

With Jamie Vardy set to return to former club Fleetwood Town in the FA Cup third round tomorrow, a local pub have dedicated an ale in honour of the Leicester City striker.

Vardy famously spent the majority of his career in the lower tiers of English football, scoring 34 goals in 42 appearances during his one season with Fleetwood.

The England international’s impressive strike rate even saw the Cod Army seal promotion to the Football League in 2012, before Leicester snapped him up that summer for a cool £1 million.

And with Vardy having player a major role in winning the 2016 Premier League title for the Foxes, the town of Fleetwood will celebrate his return naming an ale after him at the local Stawberry Gardens Pub.

The limited edition ‘Vardy’s Return’ ale will be available from tomorrow afternoon ahead of their 12.45pm kick-off and the pub’s manager, Billy Melvin claims it was the least they could do for the 30-year-old goal-scorer.

“The pubs, takeaways and shops in the town will definitely experience an economic boost from such a big game taking place,” Melvin told i News via FourFourTwo.

“The whole town is buzzing about it and Jamie Vardy’s return. We owe Jamie a lot in Fleetwood and naming an ale in his honour was the least we could do.

“It’ll be great to get the chance to welcome him back.”

Fleetwood are currently 12th in League One, while Vardy’s Leicester climbed to 8th in the Premier League with victory over Huddersfield on Monday.
