A look at some connections on the pitch between Kidsgrove and Port Vale.
Current Kidsgrove team
The former Port Vale youth defender has become a key member of the Kidsgrove side. The youngster was a professional at Vale between 2015 and 2016 during which time he spent a loan spell with Kidsgrove. He was released in 2016.
The striker was another player to progress through the junior ranks. He made three senior appearances and looked a decent prospect but he left the club in November 2010 by mutual consent. Since then Malbon has a prolific non-league scorer and joined Kidsgrove in 2014.
Vale legend Andy Porter managed Kidsgrove Town between 2012 and 2013. In recent years, Harry Benns, Dan Turner (right) and Harry Pickering have been sent on loan to Kidsgrove.
Players to move to Kidsgrove after their Vale careers include Chris Birchall, Ryan Brown, Richard Eyre, Ross Davidson and Paul Donnelly to name just a few.
