If you want us to promote your good cause or event in our digest, please give us plenty of notice and email us at news@onevalefan.co.uk All suitable messages will be displayed in our weekly digest feature.

Third successive title for Port Vale Deaf!

Once again, the Port Vale Deaf DFC side continue their champion form. The talented fans outfit have finished league champions of the Staffordshire Ability Counts League for the third season in a row. In fact, Port Vale Deaf have never finished out of the top spot in their three year existence and their five-a-side team is currently top of the Fenton Manor 5-a-side league.

Port Vale Deaf currently play in seven-a-side and five-a-side leagues and player Shaun Sadlier told OVF: “At the moment, we got 17 players and we could  possibly move to Multi-Disability Football League, an eleven-a-side league for next season.”

If you’d like to join them, deaf players train in the Port Vale FC community building on Monday evenings from 7.30pm to 8.45pm. Everyone who qualifies for the relevant disability group is very welcome to come and train but do ring their office first on 01782 575594 to let the team know.
