The administrators running Port Vale have confirmed that manager Micky Adams and first-team coaches Mark Grew and Geoff Horsfield will remain at the club.
Administrator Bob Young told the Sentinel: “After having a chat with Micky I assured him Mark and Geoff are safe.
“We’ve got a fairly thin coaching staff and I don’t believe there are grounds to cut it.
“Micky is keen to keep them both, and made it clear he regards them as crucial to the ongoing success of the team. I agreed with him.
“I don’t want to undermine Micky’s position in any way so I listened to his advice and made the decision.
“Clearly, Mark and Geoff are assets to the club.
“Micky was delighted, and was a much happier guy as a result of the decision.
“I wouldn’t say keeping them is well within my budget, but I believe it is attainable within in.”
