About Peter Miller

When Peter Miller was ousted as chairman by fellow board members at the end of 2011 he had presided over one of the most controversial spells in the club’s history.

Miller and fellow board members Glenn Oliver, Perry Deakin and Mike Lloyd led the football club into administration after a number of controversial decisions notably Deakin and Miller’s ascent to the board despite not paying for their shares (the so-called “nil-paid shares” affair), failed financial link-ups with two US companies Ameriturf and Blue Sky International, a secret remortgaging of Vale Park which broke the terms of the club’s loan agreement with Stoke-on-Trent council and being sued by former club sponsors Harlequin Properties.

On 9th March 2012, the club entered administration for the second tie in its history after HMRC issued a winding-up petition.

To date, Deakin and Miller have failed to pay for any of the shares they “purchased” in Port Vale football club.
