Ashes hero Vaughan joins the Sheffield legends

FORMER England cricket captain Michael Vaughan joined Sheffield's Walk of Fame on Monday.

The ex-Silverdale School student, who captained Yorkshire and memorably steered his country to victory over Australia in 2005, saw a plaque with his name unveiled in the pavement in front of the town hall.

He becomes a 'Sheffield Legend', alongside the likes of Michael Palin, Seb Coe, Gordon Banks, Joe Cocker and Def Leppard, who were all either born in or had strong associations with the city.

Lord Mayor Coun Graham Oxley said: "Michael has already been acknowledged as one of England's greatest cricket captains and was honoured with the Freedom of the City but to become a 'Sheffield Legend' you have to be nominated by the people of Sheffield."
