Darrell Clarke Leaves Port Vale

Written by on 17 April 2023

  • Club Statement | Port Vale part company with manager Darrell Clarke

  • Clarke leaves the Valiants following run of two wins in last 18 League One matches
  • David Flitcroft: “We have immense gratitude to Darrell for his role in driving the club away from potential relegation from League Two to winning promotion to League One. However, following discussions in recent weeks with Darrell, the backroom staff and senior players, we have decided now is the best time to make a change and give ourselves the best chance of retaining the League One status we have all worked so tirelessly to achieve.”

Port Vale Football Club has parted company with manager Darrell Clarke following Saturday’s League One defeat at Lincoln City.

Darrell deserves the utmost respect and appreciation from all at Port Vale for his contribution to the club’s progress since he was appointed in February 2021. However, performances and results have been below expectations since the turn of the year, with just two wins in our 18 League One fixtures since New Year’s Day and an alarming trend in performances in recent weeks.

Andy Crosby will now take charge of the first team, initially on an interim basis until the end of the 2022/23 season, with the club’s immediate focus on retaining our League One status.
