Vale an attractive proposition

Micky Adams has been excited by the amount of interest shown in the club after sealing promotion to League One.


The Vale boss believes the atmosphere around the club following promotion has made the prospect of watching and playing at Vale Park an attractive proposition going into next season's League One campaign.


Adams said: “People are buying into the project and there is a lot of interest in the club, as I’ve said before mainly from players and agents but certainly the fans have bought into it also.”


Over 3,000 Season Tickets have been sold to date, and the Vale boss has welcomed the added boost it will give the club.


Local matches against Wolves, Crewe, Shrewsbury and Walsall will attract large away crowds next season giving the club an added boost in comparison to the low away attendances seen at Vale Park in League Two.


He added: “I think in terms of Season Ticket sales, they’ve gone very well and that is obviously a boost to the football club.”


As usual the end of season break brings out the best in creative football gossip columns, with a host players linked to Vale Park.


Vale manager Adams is confident of building a competitive squad for next season's League One campaign but has admitted he is prepared to play a waiting game to acquire the additions he wants.


“We are trying to formulate a squad for the start of next season, which is difficult because you have to wait for a lot of people to make decisions on their futures,” said Adams.


“It’s busy because there are a lot of footballers out there that see Port Vale as an attractive proposition but we have just got to be patient.


“I think some of the names that are interested in joining us surprised me a little bit.


“Everyone has seen we’ve been promoted and there’s a buzz about the place, 12 and half thousand at the last home game, there is certainly a large amount interest but it’s a waiting game.”
