We can confirm that Nathan Rooney has left his role as Head of Coaching at Port Vale Football Club.
On the departure Director of Football David Flitcroft said, "As a club we have come to the mutual decision to allow Nathan to progress and develop his career as a Manager/Head Coach.
"That is where his true talent and passion lies in terms of managing and coaching and there is is no doubt that he will continue to achieve good things.
"It was proving difficult with logistics for Nathan to fully focus on his role at Port Vale as he is currently a non league manager with Colne FC."
Nathan said: "I would like to thank Carol and the club for the opportunity they have given me during my time at Port Vale.
"I have enjoyed working with all the staff and I wish all the teams in the club the very best going forward."
The club would like to wish Nathan all the best with his future in football and we'd like to thank him for his time spent at Vale Park
