Wildes: Vale have ‘fantastic’ future under Smurthwaite

Former chairman Paul Wildes said it was “very hard” to leave Vale Park but he thinks the club has a “fantastic” future ahead of it under sole owner Norman Smurthwaite.

Talking to BBC Radio Stoke, Wildes denied he had fallen out with Smuthwaite, but that the pair had “needed to make a call” as it was “very difficult for two people to run one ship.”

Wildes added that he had had a “great time and met some lovely people” and he may take ownership of another club in the future.

The businessman added that he was pleased to “bow out on a high” but the owners had needed to make a call as the club needed one person making the decisions.
