A decent man and manager at lower league level. I wish him well. I bet he has a few tales to tell towards the end of his Vale residency. We have moved on, John will too, however, in my opinion, he made a key contribution in what was a period of darkness at Vale. I wonder to this day how we managed to avoid losing league status. Hopefully, those days are gone.

All the best to him. He kept us up, had us on the cusp of the play-offs. Things went wrong for whatever reason and he couldn't turn it around, so time to go.  I wish him only success for the future.

Telford are a decent size club for National North level at least, tbf their fanbase is on a par with a few clubs who we've played in the league in recent years, so potential is definately there to be at least a league higher.  I think since the old club folded in the early 2000s after they splashed out on Mills and Naylor(at the end of their careers) amongst others they've not really pushed the boat out too much in their new guise which is understandable but they were a steady Alliance/Conference side for 20 years before that.  Hope Askey gets a chance there.
