Geniue question does anyone who is our chief or Head scout apart from Rudgie.. Can anyone shed any light what our current set up is emoji362.png

 

Looks like you’ve answered your own question.  I guess, to quote from the opening sentence in your “bang average side” topic, that you still “feel the need to offlad (sic) some stuff that is really getting to me”. 🤔

Wrong thread, to but add to the apparent improved professionalism at the scouting level, the club have announced a boardroom re-jig today (https://www.port-vale.co.uk/news/2020/january/club-statement/ - quick note, have a gander at how well written this is! Compare to Norm's 'valiants. sweety jar soon be opened. papa smurfs' communication'.

 

Key points include;

Kevin moving to am Ambassadorial Role

Colin in control of the football business and Claire Halket in control of the non-football business.

A new Vice-Chair of the Board

Specialists in IT, Finance, and Law appointed to the board with specific roles related to their expertise.

 

So the Board of Directors is now:

Carol - Chairlady

Kevin - Ambassador

Kate Beardmore - Vice Chair

Colin Garlick - CEO

Claire Halket - COO

Marian Humphreys - Law

Ian Lewis - IT (modernising ticket system is first job)

Rob Moorhouse - Finance

 

 

People may overlook it but this is a superb example of the professional operation now being run out of Vale Park. People who know what they're doing with a bit of strategy and long-term vision.

Feel free to move this admins but just felt it suited the narrative well; work is being done to make us a properly well run business and football club.

I think that this summer will be really interesting in terms of recruitment. 

I felt as though Askey played it "safe" last summer by signing players he had worked with before. And I don't blame him from seeking familiarity given the turmoil the club was in.

But after a year of Carol and Kevin at the helm, and the new scouts watching 10-15 games a week, I'm hopeful our recruitment will be a lot better than previous years.

If we can uncover a Mitch Clarke, Alex Jones or a Jake Taylor on a permanent deal instead of loans then that would be excellent!
