Bang in-form Port Vale striker Jamie Proctor has told the media that he feels “lucky” to be part of the Valiants squad as he paid tribute to “a club that tunes in on the fine details and looks after us.”
I’ve never been at a club — and I’ve had a lot — where the togetherness is so strong from the top to the bottom. It’s unbelievable…
Proctor has been in superb form in recent week and he told the media after the game: “I’ve never been at a club — and I’ve had a lot — where the togetherness is so strong from the top to the bottom. It’s unbelievable. There’s not one lad in that changing room that does not understand or appreciate that.
“We speak about it and say how lucky we are to be at a club that tunes in on the fine details and looks after us. It’s the belief and will to win for the club as a whole. You can talk about the gaffer and everything that has gone on with him this season, and we want to succeed for him but all in all, it’s just to do it for the club.
“Looking after myself throughout the week and knowing what I can and can’t do — that comes from the staff. The club allow me to not be out on the pitch Monday to Friday for every minute because it’s Saturday at three o’clock that I need to be out there. So whether that’s a couple of days in the gym instead of being out on the grass to be sure that my body will be ready for the game, then that’s where I’m at.
“I’ve been allowed to do that this season, so that trust and the experience of knowing your body, with the lads behind me, is incredible.”
