Port Vale: Club Profile
After a hard-fought battle in the 2009-10 FA Cup, we’ve since gone onto meet Port Vale in both League One and League Two. Our first league encounter with Stoke’s second team came during the 2010-1 League Two campaign; League One offering a new battleground in our ill-fated 2013-4 campaign. But we got a chance to pick up where we left off with the Valiants in 2017 when they too found themselves unable to remain in the third tier.

Facilities for Disabled Fans
Port Vale, like other clubs, reserves the right to ask for ‘proof of disability’ before offering concessions or other facilities. This includes:
- Middle/higher rate of Disability Living Allowance – Mobility or Care Component
- Enhanced rate of Personal Independent Payment Mobility or Care Component
- Severe Disablement Allowance
- Letter from your GP or Care Worker
- Copy of registration documents that certify Registered Blind or Registered Partially Sighted status, or qualifying documentation from a registered optician to that effect
There are 19 accessible parking spaces for when you arrive. In the ground, meanwhile, the Valiants have a range of services and facilities for fans with a disability. You can get more information from the club on the full extent of these.
Just outside the away end, you’ll find the Vale Social – a club bar that lets away fans in for £2 a head. Over 60s and Under 18s are free, however. Apart from that, you might find that other nearby bars are for home fans only. That means you’ll have to venture into the town centre for alternative options for your pre-match tipple.
Port Vale Travel Information – Distance: 142 miles
Travelling to Stoke-on-Trent isn’t too hard in terms of navigation. You will, however, be at the mercy of the Saturday motorway traffic no matter which of the two routes you choose to take en-route to the Midlands. Both involve joining up with the M1 however you like to do that. But at the M6 interchange, it’s all up to you…
One option sees you keep going north on the M1 until you get to the junction for the A453 at Donington/East Midlands Airport/Nottingham. At this point, head off the motorway and onto the dual carriageway that runs parallel to hook up with the westbound A50 for Derby.
It’s essentially an M1/M6 link road that brings you to the outskirts of Stoke. Enter the city and head past the Britannia Stadium (remember that place?). Then, you must turn right onto the A500. Exit the A500 onto the A527 and take the fourth exit at the roundabout for Tunstall.
Shortly after, turn right onto the B5051 and continue straight over a couple of crossroads – and a roundabout; just after the A50 crossroads is when you need to become watchful. At this point, Hamil Road will appear on your left. Take this turn and you’re there.
If you fancy braving the weekend M6, head north to Junction 15 for the A500. Head into Stoke and once at the A527, it’s all a bit samey to what we said just above.
You can find a decent-sized car park outside the away end, which is Car Park C and will set you back a fiver. Otherwise, you can chance your arm on local streets.
Services to: STOKE (for LONDON EUSTON)
If you’re serious about getting the train and don’t mind the faff of getting a connection from Stoke to Longport, this could well be your best bet.
From Longport station, head up Station Street towards Brookside and continue onto the A5271 Newcastle Street for just over half a mile. You’ll pass The Pack Horse on the left. As you follow the road around to the right over a roundabout, you’ll see that Newcastle Street becomes the B5051. You’ll want to remain on this road as it snakes back around.
You should ultimately pass the Duke William on the right hand side as you continue onto Market Place. Cross the A50 and the second left turning will be Hamil Road.
If you prefer to go to Stoke, you’ll be five miles from the ground and need a bus or taxi.
