Port Vale loanee helps steer club to promotion

Port Vale keeper Sam Johnson was in goal as AFC Halifax Town sealed promotion to the National League at the weekend.

Johnson has been out on loan all season – for the first-half of the season he spent a spell with Gateshead but after losing his place he switched to AFC Halifax, a club where he had enjoyed a previous loan spell.

Johnson made twenty two appearances for Halifax including playing the full ninety minutes in the club’s National League North play-off win over Chorley.

However, the 24 year-old is out of contract in the summer and after failing to secure a first-team spot, Johnson is expected to leave. Vale well-stocked with young goalkeepers thanks to the likes of Ryan Boot, Harry Pickering and Joe Slinn all being on professional deals.

At least Sam can leave Vale Park with a promotion under his belt.
