Tideswell to step down after fans’ victory

Prominent Vale columnist Martin Tideswell has announced his intention to step down from the Port Vale Supporters Club committee “knowing that we have achieved what we set out to achieve.”

Yesterday marked the end of a very long and, at times, incredibly dark road for Port Vale…

In a blog posting, Tideswell explains that despite much personal abuse and “unbelievable self-interest from people who really ought to have known better” he is proud of affecting positive change at Vale Park.

Tideswell’s blog begins: “When Norman Smurthwaite sent a text on Monday to say all was good and that the takeover of Port Vale would be completed the following day I felt an enormous sense of relief.

“Yesterday marked the end of a very long and, at times, incredibly dark road for Port Vale, its staff and its long-suffering supporters.

“For me, personally, the takeover means I can now step down from the Supporters’ Club (SC) committee knowing that we have achieved what we set out to achieve.

“The self-interested few who were running Port Vale into the ground 12 months ago are history and will very soon be hearing from the liquidators of the old Valiant 2001.

“Crucially, Port Vale is out of administration and under new ownership.”

Bloomin’ ‘eck, Martin, I’m filling up here!

Just glad you saw the light, mate, and joined the revolution. Here’s hoping for a great future for Vale.
