Today saw the Chairman present the Vale squad with gifts upon embarking on the 2017/18 season; his first as part of the boardroom.
The gifts were in fact bottle kiln’s, synonymous with the area and they were made by Tracy Bentley of Burslem Pottery.
On the bottle kiln features Fradley’s self-confessed life-long motto ‘Adapt, Improvise, Overcome’ a adage that he asked Michael Brown’s new squad to take into the forthcoming season. Also on the kiln was 'Port Vale FC 2017/18'.
The Vale squad will be travelling down to CrawleyTown for their first fixture of the new season, and Fradley wished them will on the upcoming season.
