Alex Hurst signs from Port Vale

By Dan Simmonite | 21st June 2022

We are delighted to announce the signing of Alex Hurst from League One club Port Vale for an undisclosed fee.

The winger links up again with Manager John Askey who signed the 22-year-old whilst in charge at The Valiants.

Hurst started his career in the youth system at Crewe Alexandra before impressing in non-league for the likes of Matlock Town and Bradford (Park Avenue) which earned him a move into the Football League with Port Vale.

Upon joining, he said: “I knew there was some interest from talking to my agent last year and as soon as I heard they wanted to sign me permanently I just wanted to get it over the line.

“It is a great club and I’ve worked with the Gaffer before – he gave me my debut in the Football League.

“I can play on the left or the right wing, like a wide forward, and I’d like to think I’m someone who can get the fans off their seat. I like to run at players, attack players and get crosses into the box.

“I’d like to get my stats up and to get some more goals and assists to my name is my main goal this season.”

Hurst will join up with his new teammates for pre-season training on July 1st.
