Happy Brown keen to stay at Vale

Veteran midfielder Michael Brown says he is “thoroughly enjoying” his time at Vale Park and would be happy to extend his stay.

Brown has now netted five goals for the Valiants whilst his experience and his involvement in the coaching side makes him an important figure at the club.

It has been great here. I have done a bit of coaching as well, there is a good group of players and I really enjoy going into work…

He told the media: “I would love to [stay]. There is an option for me to stay another year and I would love to do that. It is 35 or 40 minutes from my home and it is not a financial thing, it is about playing football.

“So, if the club would like to do that I would certainly like to get it sorted.

“It has been great here. I have done a bit of coaching as well, there is a good group of players and I really enjoy going into work.

“I had a bit of a difficult start because I had a few niggly injuries in pre-season and didn’t get going. But you have to bide your time and I knew I would get my chance.

“I am getting a little run in the team and am thoroughly enjoying it.”
