Striker Tom Pope says that the Valiants have strengthened their squad this season.
Pope told the official Port Vale YouTube channel: “I think we’ve brought a few lads in that have certainly made us better.
“Connell has looked excellent defensively, Manny has struggled with his injuries but he looks like he’s going to be a big asset for us during the season, Joycey keeps the ball ticking over nicely.”
“I do believe we’ve certainly got a stronger group this year.”
