Speaking on conclusion of the transfer, manager Darrell Clarke commented:
“Ben is a young, hungry and ambitious footballer who we are delighted to bring to Port Vale. He’s got great energy and fitness levels and I see him an attacking number 8 capable of the box-to-box role.
“He enjoyed a successful season on a personal level at Oldham and I believe he has got more goals in him. We are very pleased to have secured his signature and looking forward to working with him in pre-season and beyond and helping Ben to kick on further.”
Garrity got off the mark by scoring both goals in a 2-1 win at Swindon Town in September.
