PORT VALE striker Gavin Tom­lin has ad­mit­ted he is sur­prised by the qual­ity on show in League One.

The 30-year-old, who moved this sum­mer from League Two side Southend, scored 16 goals in 42 games for the Shrimpers last cam­paign.

“I like to test my­self and I pre­fer to test my­self against the higher op­po­nents, so I’m look­ing for­ward to the next few games,” said Tom­lin.

“The op­po­nents have been bet­ter than I ex­pected – they pass the ball fairly well.

“The higher you go the less weak­ness in your op­po­nents, so it’s been in­ter­est­ing.”
