Former Valiant Sam Kelly joins Grimsby Town

Former Valiant Sam Kelly joins Grimsby Town

As we suggested earlier this month on OVF, former Port Vale winger Sam Kelly has joined League Two rivals Grimsby Town.

Kelly was released earlier this month following a two-year spell with the Valiants. The former Norwich and Everton man made 57 appearances for Vale although the majority were from the bench as he failed to nail down a regular starting spot.

Influential Grimsby blog Cod Almighty claimed that Kelly could be linking up with Town and it has now been confirmed that he has signed a two-year deal.

“Russell [Slade] has been a manager at some great clubs and is a big name in football,” Kelly told Grimsby’s website.

“When I got the original call from my agent, I couldn’t turn down the opportunity to work with him.”
