Vale bring in experienced duo

Port Vale have announced the double signing of midfielders Steve Jennings and Michael Brown.

The experienced duo, with over 950 professional appearances between them, have both signed one-year deals at Vale Park.

Manager Mickey Adams told the club's website: "We're delighted to bring both to the Vale. They are two vastly experienced midfield players, who will bring real competition for places in that department."

The 29-year-old Jennings joins the club after a successful trial, following his release from Tranmere, and Brown, 37, was a free agent after leaving Leeds.

Adams confirmed Brown will perform a dual role with the club, adding: "Michael will also combine playing with coaching the reserve team when fixtures permit."
