About Rob Page
The former Wales International joined the club as part of Micky Adams’ coaching team in 2011.
Initially a youth coach, he was promoted to the role of assistant manager after the departure of Geoff Horsfield in 2014. Later that year, Page took over as Port Vale manager when Adams departed.
He was manager of the Valiants for a two year spell bringing in the likes of Anthony Grant, Ben Purkiss, Jak Alnwick and Uche Ikpeazu before leaving to take up a similar managerial position at Northampton Town in the summer of 2016.
