Lorne St stand is fully seated

Recommended Posts

Here's a photo I thought I'd never see - https://www.port-vale.co.uk/news/2020/april/lorne-street-stand-update/

After 22 years, I think it's a stunning statement of intent from Carol and Kevin.

Let's hope that after all the pandemic madness goes away, the Go Fund Me can raise the funds for the concourse and we'll have a fully operational main stand.

Hats off to Carol, Kevin and the rest of the team. Absolutely superb work.

The rate at which the club is progressing, on and off the field is amazing. 

Obviously I want us to win every game but the football is just a part of why I’m so proud to be a Vale fan now. Thank you for giving us our club back.

how is the fund razing going not seen it for a while

Understandably it’s stalled a bit at the moment, but I would expect it to kick on again once the football starts again.

There's links to it on the OVF homepage and forum index:

It looks to have a few more donations since the news of the seats going in and is closing in on 10k. So, it's 10% of the way there...

Like Conrad, I suspect if/when the season resumes a few bucket collections etc will boost it a bit more..

Every time I've been to Vale Park over the last 20 years or so, I've asked myself the question what visiting supporters, coming back season after season, made of the eyesore that was the unfinished Lorne Street stand. For all the world, it must have been a visible sign of a once vibrant club just stagnating. But no more. So thank you Carol and Kevin for signalling to the world that we are on the way back. Brilliant.
