Ben Williamson: It will be ‘weird’ going back to Vale

Former Port Vale striker Ben Williamson has admitted it will be “weird” returning to Vale Park on Saturday.

Williamson signed for Saturday’s visitors Gillingham in the summer and he told the Kent Messenger newspaper: “It will be weird going back to Port Vale, my old club and being on the other side but we want to go and get the win. It is all Gills for me now.

t will be weird going back to Port Vale, my old club and being on the other side…

“I don’t know what kind of a reception I will get, you never do when you go back to an old club. When you get offered a deal and go somewhere else, it will be interesting and I am sure there will be a few boos. I know what some fans can be like but I am not too bothered.

“I am from Dulwich and that was part of the reason for coming back down South. I had been up with Port Vale for four years and I thought it was time for a change. When this came up, it was close to home and a no-brainer.”
