Port Vale FC has assured both supporters and the Football League that Vale Park will be able to host games in time for the new season kick-off.
Concerns have been raised after the club announced that two pre-season friendlies would be played behind closed doors and the club revealed that they were unable to carry out maintenance work while the club was in administration.
The news was labelled “pathetic” by the Port Vale Supporters Club who are meeting with the club’s administrators to see if fans can assist with the work.
Bob Young of Begsbies Traynor’s administrators told the Sentinel: “[Club secretary] Bill Lodey has put a lot of work in with the safety officer. He has negotiated a three-month window for some of the work to be done. We are also spending money so that the ground can meet requirements and open for the Burnley match.
We will also try very hard to see if it can be ready for the second friendly game.”
A spokesman for the Football League commented: “Port Vale will be expected to fulfil their fixtures in the same way that every club who enters our competitions will be.”
