OVF Opinion: Vale deserve praise for inviting asylum seekers to game

Port Vale invited eleven children from families seeking asylum to watch the game against Northampton Town.

It’s far nicer to offer a wholehearted and well-deserved well done to Port Vale FC…

An article on the official website added that “These families have come from areas of the world where they have been severely persecuted and discriminated against but have received a warm welcome in Stoke-on-Trent…

“Football knows no boundaries and attending a game and stadium activities provided by the Port Vale Foundation has according to the children given them a real positive experience and memories for the future.

“Club staff have been running activities for asylum seeking and refugee children in school holidays and will be doing so again in the Christmas holiday at St Mark’s Church in Shelton providing presents from the Children in Need grant awarded to the Vale Park Community Initiative.”

It’s a great gesture from the club and nice to see the club trying to make a positive contribution.

I do complain about some aspects of how the club operates on this website (I only do it to try and highlight problems and by doing so, to try and improve things) but it’s far nicer to offer a wholehearted and well-deserved well done to Port Vale FC.

You have made this Port Vale fan proud of my club.
