* Appearances (Goals)

Stuart Edgar Sharrat (born 26 February 1942) is a former English footballer. He was a goalkeeper who made 152 appearances for Port Vale - 143 in the Football League, 5 in the FA Cup and 4 in the League Cup.

Playing career

Sharrat played for Ball Haye Green, Padgate Teacher Training College, West Bromwich Albion, Nantwich Town and Oswestry Town before joining Port Vale for £2,000 in March 1966. He soon became the first choice keeper and was an ever-present during the 1967–68 season. However injury struck on 14 August 1968 as he cracked a kneecap in a 2-0 defeat at Wrexham in the first round of the League Cup, later contracting a virus in his blood. Upon his recovery he became a part-time player and barely got a game. His contract was terminated in May 1972 because he was unable to get release from his work as a college lecturer to play in a testimonial game. He appealed and the club were forced by the Football League to honour his contract to 30 June 1972.[1]


Sharrat increasingly attended Vale matches as a supporter from 1986.[1]
