Ben Garratt has told the club’s official web-site that he is looking forward to our local derby clashes with rivals Port Vale. The Valiants were relegated back into EFL League Two last season and that means the two clubs will clash again this season.
Garratt says that the meetings with our neighbours are always special and he will be looking for those dates when the new EFL fixtures are released on 21st June.
Ben said to the club’s new official web-site: “It is nice to have a break but we are soon back into it and making sure we are ticking over. When the fixtures come out it means that pre-season is now too far off.
“You certainly look out for the attractive fixtures and with Port Vale dropping into League Two that is the one a lot of people will look out for. It is always a special game in a great atmosphere.
“We did miss the derby games last season and it will be great to have them back. There are great games to play in and the fans enjoy the rivalry.”
