After being spotted by Everton talent scouts while playing in the Preston area, James joined Everton's Academy programme at nine years of age.

He went on to become a prolific scorer for the youth and reserve teams, before making history on his first-team debut on 10 April 2005.

Vaughan's 73rd-minute substitute appearance against Crystal Palace ensured that he broke Joe Royle's record to become the Club's youngest first-team player by 11 days, as he was just 16 years and 271 days old (this record was later broken by Jose Baxter).

Then, his 84th-minute strike in the same game not only made him Everton's youngest-ever scorer, surpassing Wayne Rooney at 16 years 360 days, but he also overtook James Milner as the Premier League's youngest scorer - a record he still holds today.

Sadly, injuries would go on to blight James' time with the Toffees, though he was part of the 2009 FA Cup semi-final winning side and was duly rewarded with a run-out off the bench in the final.

In September 2009, Derby County swooped to take the striker on a three-month loan deal but his spell with the Rams was cut short by another knee injury.

Vaughan returned to action with Everton in December of the same season, scoring a vital goal in a win over Burnley.

Further loan spells at Leicester City and Crystal Palace were to follow, before the striker joined Norwich City for an undisclosed fee in 2011.

Vaughan moved again on loan to Huddersfield Town in August 2012 and later joined the Terriers on a permanent deal.
