Stadium Vale Park
Time at Club:
Port Vale are managed by Bruno Ribeiro who took charge of the club in the summer of 2016 after Rob Page departed to Northampton Town.
Established in 1876 in the city of Stoke-on-Trent, Port Vale have always played their football in the lower echelons of the football league and have failed to play top-flight football in their history. However, they gained early success in Division Two, having been a founder member of the league, whilst in the 1950s they managed to get into an FA Cup semi-final.
During the 1980s and 1990s the man at the centre of all things good for Port Vale football club was John Rudge as he managed to keep them in the higher leagues and they finished 8th in the Second Division after a fantastic campaign.
However, in recent times they have struggled to keep up with their neighbours and local rivals Stoke City, and as the Potters have ventured into the Premier League, the Valiants find themselves in League One.
It is now the job of Bruno Ribeiro to try and bring back some glory days to the town of Burslem, The club successfully won promotion up to League One in 2012/13 and will now look to establish themselves in the third-tier, and perhaps even mounting a push for promotion.
Numerous drawns but few defeats has seen Port Vale enjoy a strong run of results. Defeats against Charlton Athletic and Bolton Wanderers are the only black marks on a run that has seen them amass wins against Hartlepool United, Fleetwood Town and Stevenage while sharing the spoils versus Shrewsbury Town, Oldham Athletic, Doncaster Rovers, Oxford United and Charlton Athletic
