Page praises ‘old timer’ Brown

Rob Page has praised the contribution of veteran Michael Brown whose fourth goal in just 14 games helped Vale to a point against Gillingham.

Brown, 37 years old, joined Vale in the summer and recently expressed a desire to keep playing until he was 40.

He certainly made an impact on Saturday and manager Rob Page commented: “He has experience. Yes, okay every now and again when he is up against youth he struggles slightly, but he has more than enough experience to cope with that.

“Fair play to him. I have just said to him, ‘the old timer has done it again’. “
