Port Vale have offered professional contracts to three members of their youth team.
17 year-old striker Dan Turner, who came on in the 4-1 win over Rochdale is joined by 18 year-old goalkeeper Harry Pickering and right-back James Gibbons.
All three players have made regular appearances in the Vale reserves this season.
Commenting on bringing youth players through, manager Rob Page told the Sentinel: “It is important we keep doing that. We are not a club that has the finances to go out and buy players so we have to develop our own.”
