Tom Pope Testimonial?

All things must end but Tom has given the best part of a decade in service to his boyhood club. It would be fitting if he got one in my opinion especially as the fans have not had the opportunity to say farewell.

Absolutely. No brainer.

A no-brainer.  He MUST be given one-- it's sometimes an overused epithet, but Tom is a true PV legend!  Thank you Tom, I do hope that a link will remain in coming years.  Other clubs utilise ex-players for match-day hosting.  Whether this is a possibility or even something Tom would contemplate remains to be seen, but surely a position could be created?

I think the phrase in the article on the official website suggests there will probably be one...

Port Vale looks forward to welcoming Tom and his family to Vale Park in the years to come and honouring him at future events where Vale supporters can pay tribute and with a legacy project at the club.

Tom Pope should have been treated better last Saturday. That team selection was a disgrace. Without the normal support ,he looked worse than a Ladsandads player.What a way to treat a legend of Vale Park,Mr Clarke🤔

Maybe invite John Stones as a guest player ,  as long as Jonathan Wilkes doesn't turn up I'll be there 

They used to say that Pele used to turn up even for the "openining of an envelope" same can be said of Jonny Wilkes! However the boy could play....

Would be a good curtain raiser for the new season. Restrictions lifted, sunny day, feel-good atmosphere for our first proper return to VP with a few recent heroes on show.

Pubs and club shop would make a mint, new shirts will be sold out, get some deals going for 10 game tickets etc.

Would give the fans the opportunity to properly send off Tom and generate the buzz.
