Port Vale manager Micky Adams has not ruled out signing Chris Brandon, who is currently on trial at Vale Park.

The 33-year-old midfielder, who was released by Bradford in March, played 45 minutes for Vale in their 3-0 win over Harborough Town on Saturday.

"Chris asked me if he could come in and that's not a problem," Adams told BBC Radio Stoke. "He's got to show his talents because he's got to get a club.

"If he does well for us, you never know. I can't say we won't sign him."

Brandon spent almost two seasons with the Bantams but injuries restricted him to just 31 games.

Fellow trialists Gary Roberts and Ritchie Sutton also played against Harborough, who were taking on professional opposition for the very first time.

Anthony Malbon, Sean Rigg and Sam Morsy scored the goals as Vale began pre-season with a comfortable victory.

"As an exercise it's gone fantastically well," added Adams. "We've got 45 minutes of match time under our belts and we've got no injuries."
