Port Vale appoint Michael Brown on a permanent basis

Port Vale have announced the appointment of Michael Brown as the their new permanent manager.

Brown had been working in a caretaker capacity since Boxing Day following the resignation of Bruno Ribeiro who called it quits after less than 30 games at the helm.

Brown took charge of the club's remaining 23 league games, but was unable to save the Valiants from the dreaded drop down to League Two, with their fate confirmed on the final day of the season following a goalless draw at Fleetwood Town.

Brown registered only five wins from those 23 matches, while he lost five of the last seven as the club went down with a whimper.

However, despite this Brown has been handed the permanent position, and will be assisted by Chris Morgan and David Kelly.

The 40-year-old certainly has a huge job on his hands and is likely to have a massive clear out in the summer as the club prepare for life back in the fourth-tier.

Earlier in the week Tony Fradley replaced Norman Smurthwaite as the club's chairman, with the latter rather honestly admitting that he'd "seriously damaged the club".
