Chairman pleads for fans' support

Chairman Bill Bratt wants to attract supporters back to Vale Park

Port Vale chairman Bill Bratt has told fans to show their support for the club by purchasing a season ticket to watch games at a rate of 8 per match.

The offer is subject to 5,000 Vale fans taking up the offer, over 1,000 more than their average home gate this term.

Bratt told BBC Radio Stoke: "It's bringing football back to where it should be - the working class people.

"I hope the supporters will see this as something that the club are doing for them and back us."

Vale could be relegated to League Two on Saturday, even though the team have won three of their last five matches.

The club are hoping to cash in on the late revival and have urged supporters to take up the offer before the closing date, which is on 30 May.
