Alex Hurst player profile:
Port Vale signed Bradford Park Avenue midfielder Alex Hurst on a two-year contract after a successful trial at the club. Hurst was then loaned back to his former club until January 2020.
On signing Hurst, manager John Askey said: “Alex has impressed us since he’s come into training and he’s only young and he’s one that could develop and end up being a very good player for us.
“He’s got a great attitude and a lot of ability so I think it’s worth bringing him in. You need players like that who have got potential. He’s quick and got good control, for such a small lad he’s quite strong as well.
“He’s somebody who when he gets on the ball he excites you and can make things happens.”
Hurst made his debut coming on as a sub for the Valiants in a 3-2 Football League Trophy win over Macclesfield Town in September 2019. He scored his first senior goal in Vale colours during a 4-2 win over Liverpool B in the Football League Trophy in November 2020.
After breaking into the first-team during the 2020-21 season, he agreed a two year contract extension with the club in April 2021. The deal will extend his stay until 2023.
