James Gibbons: playing for Vale means a lot for a local lad

Defender James Gibbons says that playing for his local club is something he’s very proud of as he celebrates securing a contract extension.

However, the defender won’t rest on his laurels and is determined to “push on.”

To come in as a local lad and do well for your local team it means a lot. It’s my city and pride…

Gibbons told the official Port Vale website: “To come in as a local lad and do well for your local team it means a lot.

“It’s my city and pride, my mates live here, my mum and dad live here so there’s nothing better than to see the club doing well and on a personal note, myself doing well. It couldn’t be any better for me at the minute. I feel like every day I can only get better with the players I’m playing with.”

The defender added: “To get a new contract so early on is something I didn’t expect so early. I was trying to grind it out and get one as soon as possible, to get one so early is great.

“I just want to try and push on from now.”
