North & Whichelow sign-on for the 2017/18 campaign

We are pleased to announce that Jonathan North and Matty Whichelow have agreed to stay at The Vale for our 2017/18 Vanarama National League South campaign.

North who joined us at the start of the 2010/11 season having been released by Watford has been a highly consistent performer, picking up player of the year awards in his time with us  and is widely acknowledged as one of the best keeps in the National League South.

Whichelow is another former ‘Hornet’ having started his career with the Hertfordshire side before moving on to Exeter City, Wycombe Wanderers and Accingrington Stanley on loan and then to Boreham Wood before arriving at The Vale last August.

Leaving us is Tom Hamblin who has decided to accept an offer made by Hemel Hempstead Town. Tom made over 100 appearances for us after joining from Gloucester City in 2013 and was a member of our 2013/14 Ryman Premier League winning season. He leaves with our best wishes.
