Former Port Vale defender Paul Bowles has passed away at the age of 59.
The centre-half was signed from Crewe Alexandra for £30,000 in 1979 and played 113 games for the club. He also had a loan spell with Southampton.
He left the club in 1982 and joined Stockport County before finishing his career at Barrow.
