Port Vale announce fans’ form with owner and director of football



Port Vale owner Carol Shanahan and director of football David Flitcroft will answer questions at an online fans’ forum next week.

The supporters’ club and football club event is on Thursday March 11, at 7pm, and will give fans the chance to put their points and hear from the owner and new director football following his appointment last month.

The event follows a dramatic start to 2021 in which manager John Askey and his assistant Dave Kevan lost their jobs on January 4, Danny Pugh took over as interim manager, Flitcroft was installed as director of football on February 8 and then Darrell Clarke appointed as manager a week later after Vale agreed terms for his release from Walsall.

Fans can email their questions to supporters’ club chairman Mark Porter who will then ask them on the evening.

The supporters club hasn’t been able to meet for the last year because of the Covid-19 pandemic but before that regularly welcomed key figures from the club as guests to monthly meetings.

Carol and Kevin Shanahan, chief executive Colin Garlick, chief operations officer Claire Halkett and players have all met fans and answered questions at the supporters’ club events.

Supporters’ club chairman Porter said: “I am really pleased. I think it’s the right time to have it now there is a manager and director of football in place. It gives fans to ask their questions through the supporters’ club.

The Vale return to action on Saturday when they are away to leaders Cheltenham. Vale dropped a place to 21st after Tuesday’s 1-0 defeat at Salford.

Porter added: “People have got concerns, I am sure the owners and players have, but ultimately the players have to put that right on the pitch. The owners bought the club because they wanted it to succeed.

“I think once we get one result we might get a couple, but we just can’t buy a win at the moment.”

Questions should be submitted in advance to the Supporters’ Club via comments@portvalesupportersclub.org.uk by 5pm on Tuesday, March 9.

Anyone wishing to attend the online meeting should email comments@portvalesupportersclub.org.uk and request the meeting link which will be emailed out on the morning of March 11.
