SAM CAN BE VALE’S MAN
HE always had the talent but now Sam Kelly has the confidence to go with it according to Port Vale boss Rob Page.
The 22-year-old winger slalomed past three Bury defenders before firing in the winner on Monday, but Page admits the step-up has not always come easy for Kelly.
“At times I don’t think he realises what he has got,” said Page. “It is still that transition for him from playing U21s football where he can easily beat a full-back to now against good, experienced players.
“He is a great lad to work with so we just have to keep doing our job and developing him.”
