Popular local radio station ‘The Eagle’ have agreed to support The Shots this coming season.

The Port Vale home game on Saturday 12th September will be the first ”kids for a quid” game of the season and it will be advertised through the radio station to the local community, in an attempt to boost crowds at The Rec this season.

Programming director and breakfast show host Peter Gordon, who was a founder shareholder when the new club started in 1992 commented ‘Knowing what it`s like to lose our region`s only league side now seems like a great time for Eagle Radio to get behind Gary and the Team. The Club needs support from the business Community- whether it`s through sponsoring a player, corporate Hospitality or backing the playershare scheme.’

Eagle radio’s managing director, Paul Marcus goes on to explain ‘Just like many Shots supporters I would like to see the club move forward and with the agreement we have, Eagle Radio will be able to work much closer with the Club, giving access not only to our listeners but also to the many Community relationships the Radio Station enjoys.’

At a time when the club’s marketing team seem to be under question by a lot of supporters, this is a very positive move by the club, and in particular the club press officer Nick Fryer and general manager Richard Petty.
