“He’s worked hard and helped me and the dressing room.

Also leaving Vale Park are Dino Visser, Tom Scott, Adam Crookes, Shaun Brisley, Scott Brown, Luke Joyce, Ryan Campbell-Gordon, Zak Mills, David Fitzpatrick, Cristian Montano, Daniel Trickett-Smith, Mark Cullen, Kurtis Guthrie and Harry McKirdy.
