Legends Game Kicks Off This Weekend

21 July 2015

Port Vale Legends take on Crewe Alexandra this weekend as Tony Naylor’s charity game returns to Vale Park.

Last season the spectacle was a phenomenal success with over 4,000 supporters attending the match against Stoke City.

This year, we’re hoping the event will be even bigger with more money going to Alzheimer’s and cancer awareness charities.

The likes of Micky Cummins, Marc Bridge-Wilkinson and Robin Van der Laan are set to play on Sunday with kick-off scheduled for 1.30pm.

Naylor, who played over 250 league games for Vale between 1994 and 2001, started his career at Gresty Road.

He went onto make over 100 appearances for Crewe in a four-year spell with the Railwaymen, meaning both clubs are very close to his heart.

However, Tony insists raising as much as possible for charity is his main aim for the match.

“It’s really important to me because obviously my dad suffers from it [Alzheimer’s] but this does not benefit him directly,” he told

“There are thousands and thousands of families out there who it does affect and especially around this area.

“So if we can make the slightest bit of difference then surely it’s got to be well worth doing.”

Tickets for the match can be purchased from Vale’s official ticket office, situated on Hamil Road, and are available at £10 for adults and £5 for concessions.
