Micky Adams Returns To Port Vale

Richard Smith by Richard Smith / 13 May 2011, 08:56

As widely expected Micky Adams has returned to his former club Port Vale just days after being sacked by Sheffield United. Adams was the odds-on favourite to rejoin Vale after he was given the chop by the Blades on Tuesday after failing to keep the struggling club in the Championship, and as predicted has put pen to paper and signed a three-year deal with the Valiants. Adams takes over from caretaker manager Mark Grew who is expected to go back to coaching the youth-team.

Adams will have the summer to build a squad that is capable of challenging for promotion to League Two after the club slumped to an 11th place finish in their latest campaign. In his previous spell at Vale Park Adams took the club up to second in the league, however, following his departure to Sheffield United in December they lost momentum and eventually slipped out of play-contention. Things did not go to weel for Adams either as he won just out of 24 matches as the club were relegated from the Championship. Adams was expected to be given another season to try and gain instant promotion from League One but the club opted to give him a boot as they begin their search for the next Sheffield United manager.

It is hoped Adams return will invigorate the team and catapult them back into promotion contention next season. It is rumoured that major changes are going to take place at the club this season, with Adams given funds to bring in fresh talent. Sky Bet currently have Port Vale available at 14/1 to win League Two next season. The bookies favourites are big-spending Crawley Town, who have just been promoted from the Conference, and are 5/1 to win the League Two in 2011/12.
