SAT NAV INFO ST5 3BX :
Micky Adams sends his first team into action as Vale’s pre-season friendlies get under way this weekend against Newcastle Town at The Aspire Stadium – kick off 2.00pm. On the same afternoon Vale will send their youth team squad to take on Leek Town at Harrison Park.
The Vale boss will of course be making sure all of his first team squad play a part in the game, in what has become a traditional pre-season curtain-raiser.
For Vale supporters, it will be the first opportunity to see the Valiants’ new signings and many will no doubt take a keen interest in the result, but the Vale manager and his staff are much more concerned about fitness at this stage of the season.
The players have trained hard since returning from their summer break and Micky Adams’ notorious pre-season training regime will ensure that none of them will go into the game with fresh legs.
August.thDespite that, it should prove to be a good day out for the fans and a welcome break from running for the players, as Micky starts to look at different permutations as he prepares for the first League game on 9
