Deveronvale are very pleased to welcome James Simpson as the club’s first Head of Media.
In this newly-created position, James will focus on developing engaging content based around the Vale first team squad. This will include dedicated matchday media, which will be accessible through the club’s social media channels. In addition, supporters can also expect player and staff interviews and weekly episodes of the club’s Valecast series, which will be available every Thursday going forward.
James will work closely with the club’s Commercial Director Calum Lawrie to further expand on our supporter engagement and club partnership efforts and brings with him an excellent track-record of creating exciting football-based content through his successful ‘Total Screamers’ podcast and its recent collaboration with The Same Old Arsenal.
James Simpson said: “I’m immensely pleased to be starting this journey with the club, it’s a great opportunity and I can’t wait to give the fans an increased access to the 1st Team Squad and Staff through our online content”.
Commenting on the appointment, Calum Lawrie added: “James joins the club at an exciting time. Following the disruption experienced across our football operations activity over the past year we were very keen to build on our off-pitch offering to supporters and James’ arrival is a significant one in that regard. I look forward to working with him and sharing his ideas with Vale fans”.
You don’t need to wait too long for James’ club debut, with Valecast returning for a special episode next Thursday!
Welcome to Princess Royal Park, James!
