Port Vale Weekly Digest: one in, one out as season ticket sales soar

Weekly digest – movement both on and off the pitch at Vale Park…

What is this feature?

Over the summer weeks, we will present a digest of selected news stories and views from the the last week.


What they are saying on the forum…

“You are never going to keep a player who won’t play a single game next season unless our first choice keeper is injured.

He was never an ounce of bother here and was a good professional….”

TheSage on the Who Should We Sign thread

“An excellent mini documentary about the first three weeks. Seeing them work together as they are gives very positive vibes for the future…”
