Micky Adams has stepped down as manager of Port Vale after five years at the club.

The 52 year-old, who leaves Port Vale 23rd in League One, said:

“This has not been an easy decision to make, which has been made even more difficult by the strong relationships I have forged during my time at the club. I would like to thank my immediate team, all of the staff at Vale Park and the many players I have worked with throughout my two spells. I have met some truly fantastic people.

“In addition, I would like to thank all of the Port Vale fans for their fantastic support. I hope that the club has only bright times ahead.

“I believe now is the time for another manager to take the helm and I would like to thank Norman Smurthwaite and his wife Lorraine for their fantastic support. I wish the club every success for this season and the future.”
