Profile on Brian Horton
Port Vale manager Brian Horton
Brian Horton is a highly-respected manager
BBC Sport Online profiles Port Vale manager Brian Horton.

Brian Horton has been at Vale Park for just over two years.

He succeeded the long-serving John Rudge in the manager's hot-seat in January 1999.

The Staffordshire-born boss began his professional playing career at Vale in 1970, after signing from Hednesford.

He moved on and captained both Brighton and Luton to promotion to the old First Division.

Horton had his first managerial experience at Hull City where he was player-boss and won promotion to the old Division Two in his first season at the helm.

He also finished his playing career at Boothferry Park after nearly 700 games.

Horton then managed Oxford United, Manchester City and Huddersfield before returning to Brighton.

Success came in the form of steering them away from the bottom of Division Three for the first time in three seasons.
