Ben Garrity player profile
Port Vale FC signed former Blackpool midfielder Ben Garrity in June 2021 as the club’s second signing of the summer.
The attacking midfielder spent a spell on loan with League Two rivals Oldham Athletic in the 2020-21 season.
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. He capped a sensational first season at the club with a tally of twelve goals and the player of the year award as the Valiants won promotion to League One.
His goalscoring dried up in his second season as he was deployed in a more defensive role but his energy and workrate remained crucial to the Vale midfield. He agreed a new two-year deal with the club in the summer of 2023.
