Port Vale unable to pay players

Port Vale have failed to pay their players' wages for February.

The financially-stricken League Two club broke the news to the team after Tuesday's 1-1 draw against Crewe.

The latest off-field developments have increased fears that Vale, who are under a transfer embargo, could be entering administration.

Vale defender Gareth Owen told BBC Radio Stoke: "It's a terrible time. At the minute we don't see any light at the end of the tunnel."
Use accessible player and disable flyout menus

The Valiants, who are currently chasing a play-off place, revealed that they had been put under a transfer embargo on Saturday because of an unpaid tax bill.

Vale's fans have been campaigning for the removal of the board and former chairman Peter Miller resigned as a director earlier this week, meaning the board has fewer than the four directors required by law to allow the club to function properly.

If they do go into administration, they will be deducted 10 points, sending them down to 16th in the table - 11 points above the relegation zone with 14 games remaining.

Vale boss Micky Adams said: "I'm massively disappointed with what's going on. I think it's going to get worse before it's going to get better.

"If the rumours are true then tomorrow morning instead of pushing for the play-offs, we need to win games to stay in the League."

And Adams, who is in his second spell in charge at Vale Park, concedes his job might not be safe if the club do enter administration.

"If we go into administration, it's down to the administrators, not me," he said. "I don't see why I should [quit] but that could be taken out of my hands."

And 29-year-old defender Owen says that some of the players will struggle to pay their bills.

"This is League Two and you live hand to mouth," he said. "It's a worrying time for everybody.

"We had no idea at all [that we would not be paid] which is the most frustrating aspect for the lads and has made them very angry.

"I've been speaking to the PFA [Professional Footballers' Association] to see what they can do but that will take time. So we'll have to survive for the next couple of months without any income at all."

Asides rivalries, it's sickening to see so many league clubs not being able to pay wages/debts these days. Where is all this FA football in the community bullshit when you need it? Doh

Vale has always been a good day out for me. Wink

Going to be many more newly formed clubs and i can see it getting worse. Hopefully the premier league clubs will get hit at some point.
