Port Vale manager Neil Aspin says that trialist Rory McKeown has departed despite giving a good account of himself.
Aspin is experimenting with three at the back and this requires wingbacks – and with McKeown a classical fullback he is no longer required.
Aspin told the Sentinel newspaper: “At the moment we are playing with wing-backs and he is an out-and-out left-back.
“We might have to look at a couple of other areas and that is what we are doing.
“But he didn’t let himself down, he gave a good account of himself and he trained well. But we have tried a couple of other people as wing-backs and we are probably looking at the moment at doing something like that.”
