In April 2005, Vaughan became Evertons youngest ever player, beating the record previously held by Joe Royle by 11 days - a record since broken by Jose Baxter. A goal on his debut not only made him Evertons youngest ever scorer, surpassing Wayne Rooney, but he also overtook James Milner as the Premier Leagues youngest scorer.

A knee ligament injury suffered on England Under-18 duty the following season stunted his club progress and Vaughan has been restricted to just eight league starts for the Toffees. The Birmingham-born frontman had loan spells at Derby and Leicester prior to an extended spell at Palace in the 2010/11 season where he scored nine goals in 30 appearances.
