Former Port Vale Chairman Bill Bell has passed away

Everyone at Port Vale Football Club is saddened to hear of the death of former Chairman Bill Bell following a long illness.


Bell, 81, was Chairman between 1987 and 2002 and was instrumental in the redevelopment of Vale Park, in addition to being pivotal in the successful era under manager John Rudge.


The Port Vale squad will be wearing black arm bands for the home fixture against Morecambe this Saturday, when the club will also be having a minute’s applause. 


The club would like to send its best wishes to Bill’s wife Jean, his daughter Linda, son-in-law Andrew and grandchildren Katie and James.
