Vale have continued their efforts to confirm the squad for next season by agreeing a one year contract extension with long serving player, and current Club Captain, Graeme Watt. Watty first signed for Vale at the start of season 2003-04 and has his Testimonial season in 2018. Manager Steve Dolan said “I’m delighted to have Watty extend his contract. He has been an important member of the Vale squad for many years and has also been a regular scorer for the Club. Although his appearances over the last couple of seasons have been limited by a change of job, he remains a key man for Vale and brings a wealth of experience to our young squad. Although Graeme has been out for a few weeks with a broken collar bone, this is on the mend and we hope to see him back in action around the end of December”.
