Career[edit]

Stockport County[edit]

Born in Glossop, Vincent joined Stockport County aged just eight.[3] In 2005, he joined the 'Centre of Excellence' youth system at Stockport, before making his first-team debut two years later, as a substitute in a 1–0 win over Brentford on the last day of the 2007–08 season.[4]

The 2008–09 season saw Vincent feature more regularly in the team. He scored his first goal for the club on 18 November 2008 in a 5–0 win over Yeovil Town in the FA Cup.[5] He scored his first league goal, on 10 March 2009, in a 2–1 win over Hartlepool United.[6] After the match, manager Jim Gannon said his midfield trio, of which Vincent was one, 'are really just three fantastic players'.[7] Vincent scored his second league goal, on 24 April 2009, in a 4–1 win against Crewe Alexandra.[8]

In May 2011, he was informed that he would not be offered a further contract by Stockport due to the club's financial position.[9]

Kidderminster Harriers[edit]

In June 2011, he joined Conference National outfit Kidderminster Harriers on a one-year contract.[3] He made his debut in the opening game of the season, a 3–2 defeat to Gateshead,[10] He scored his first goal for the club in a 3–1 win over Alfreton Town on 17 September 2011.[11] Vincent then scored twice, in a 5–4 win over Braintree Town in October 2011.[12] On 29 May 2012, he signed a new one-year contract with the club.[13]

Inverness Caledonian Thistle[edit]

In June 2013, Vincent signed for Scottish Premiership side Inverness Caledonian Thistle on an initial one-year contract.[14] He scored on his debut – in the opening game of the season – in a 3–0 win over St Mirren.[15] After his debut, Vincent stated that he believed his move to Inverness was a "step up in my career."[16] He signed a contract extension in February 2014, committing himself to Inverness until 2016, despite reported interest from other clubs.[17]

On 30 May 2015, Vincent came on as a substitute with twenty minutes of the Scottish Cup Final remaining at Hampden Park. He scored the decisive goal in a 2-1 victory against Falkirk.[18][19]
