First Words - Graham Kelly

22 June 2017

Graham Kelly put pen to paper on a two year deal earlier today, as he became the sixth summer signing at Vale Park.

The 19 year-old joined Vale following his departure from Sheffield United, where he rose through the ranks over the years.

A left-back by trade, Kelly will look to battle it out for a place in Michael Brown’s starting eleven during the League Two 2017/18 campaign.

Upon completing his move to Port Vale, Kelly spoke of his delight to complete the move:

He said: “I’m delighted to finally get everything sorted I just can’t wait to get started now and meet all the lads

“I think Vale is the perfect place for me and when I heard there was interest I straight away wanted to come here. I worked with Chris Morgan at Sheffield united to and i know what he wants and having spoke to the Gaffer I know what’s wanted from me.”

Having spoken to Michael Brown and knowing Chirs Morgan, Kelly was looking forward to working with them and wants to be playing football again.

He added: “They told me to come in and it will be a great opportunity for me to get playing football again and I hope it can be a good season to get the club where they belong.

“I want to start pre-season well and hopefully on the first game of the season I will be in the starting eleven and work my way from there to play as much football as I can throughout the season."
