Playing career

Born in Lytham St Annes, Lancashire, Anyon played in the Blackburn Rovers youth system before joining Port Vale.[citation needed] He joined Stafford Rangers on loan towards the end of the 2004–05 season, making five appearances.[2] He rejoined Stafford on loan in August 2005,[3] again making five appearances.[4] After winning a first team contract with Vale, Anyon spent time on loan at Harrogate Town, making two appearances in November.[4] He rejoined Harrogate in February 2006,[5] making nine appearances before returning to Vale after breaking his jaw in April.[4][6]

He made his first team debut for the Vale in December 2006, after first-choice goalkeeper Mark Goodlad ruptured his right achilles tendon against Bristol City in December 2006 and had to have reconstructive surgery. He then went on to play the rest of the 2006–07 season, with only 25 goals scored against him. Goodlad was forced to retire due to his injury and Anyon has since established himself as the first choice keeper.[7]

Following a 3–1 home defeat to Macclesfield Town in the FA Cup on 28 November 2008, Anyon blasted his teammates, labelling their performance as "a disgrace".[8] He fractured his tibia (broke his leg) after clashing with Drew Talbot in a 2–1 defeat at Chesterfield on 28 March 2009, bringing a premature end to his season.[9] Despite this, his performances that season earned him the 2009 Player of the Year Award, as well as the award for the best player away from home.[10] The season began with a disagreement with then-manager Lee Sinnott,[11] but Anyon was #1 under Glover and conceded sixty goals in his 39 appearances, giving Vale one of the better defensive records in the lower half of the League Two table.[12] In May 2009 he signed a new one year contract with the Vale.[13]

He returned to fitness to play a reserve game on 23 September 2009.[14] His next challenge was to displace teenager Chris Martin.[15] He was transfer listed in late September, along with the entire Port Vale squad, after manager Micky Adams saw his team slip to a third consecutive defeat.[16] He said he did not intend to move out on loan to aid in his comeback, despite admitting he had "itchy feet" over a return to first team action.[17] In January 2010 he stated that he was willing to join another club on loan in order to get some games.[18] However he returned to the startling line up at Vale Park the next month, after young rival Martin was rested.[19]
