Is it any wonder that Port Vale FC had been written off as 18th favourites for promotion at the start of the 2012-2013 season?

But by the end of a memorable campaign, the club were promoted, finished as the division’s top scorers and a life-long Vale fan was the club’s top goalscorer.

How on earth did that happen?

Rob Fielding, editor of the award-winning Port Vale website chronicles one of the most extraordinary seasons in the long history of Port Vale FC.



“If you were a Vale supporter on the 14th July 2012, you’d probably be feeling quite happy. The Valiants were finally poised to exit the dark days of board mismanagement, anti-board protests and supporter unrest and enter an exciting, prosperous era under new owner Keith Ryder. However, no fan would have guessed just how differently events turned out…”
