Early Life and Educational History
Jamie Vardy was born in Sheffield, England on 11th January 1987 into a lower middle class family. His family struggled through poverty for a long period of time. His father was a crane driver, while his mother worked as a legal secretary.
Jamie wasn’t particularly good at academics and spent most of his time playing football. By the time he was 16, he was hoping to play for the local football teams.
He wanted to be a part of the local team, ‘Sheffield Wednesday’, but was rejected for not being ‘good enough’. For sometime after that, Jamie had a change of heart and he had decided to give up on his dreams of being a footballer.
Also, regular spats with parents had him moving out of his house to live on his own. He then started taking up odd jobs to pay his bills and kept practising his football skills whenever he had time. His hard work prevailed as he was taken in by Stockbridge Park. He earned less than 30 pounds a week, but felt blessed to be in a team of football.
His performance improved under efficient coaching and after spending 3 years and scoring 66 goals, which was a miraculous performance by every standard, he finally caught the attention of the big teams.
