Time at club: 2007, 2019 –
Will Atkinson first joined Port Vale in 2007 when he signed on loan from Hull City. The youngster made just four appearances without scoring, before returning to his parent club.
However, some twelve years after his first spell, Atkinson rejoined the club on a short-term deal in October 2019. A free agent, Atkinson was added to the Port Vale squad, after a midfield injury crisis. The midfielder had made over 400 appearances prior to joining Vale after spells for the likes of Southend United and Mansfield Town.
The midfielder or defender made an immediate impression as he was named as the sponsors’ man of the match after his debut – a 3-1 home win over Morecambe. He scored his first Vale goal in October – a dramatic late winner in Port Vale’s 2-1 win over Bradford City.
