Durnin lands Vale role
Port Vale have appointed John Durnin as coach of the under-17 side.

The 36-year-old former Liverpool midfielder, who made 19 appearances last season on a non-contract basis, will be eligible to play for the first team if required.

He takes up his new post on 1 July, with the under-17s operating alongside the under-19s after the reserve team was disbanded.

"I'm absolutely delighted," Durnin told the club's official website. "This is a great opportunity for me as I've always wanted to move into coaching.

"I still think I've got a season or two left in me, so I'll be available to play if there are any injuries."

Manager Brian Horton added: "I've known John a long time and am really pleased for him.

"I know coaching is something he's always wanted to do so this is the first rung on the ladder."
