Stoke donate gate receipts to Port Vale for stadium damage during cup clash

Port Vale claimed a 4-0 victory.

Stoke have donated their gate receipts from the Checkatrade Trophy clash at Port Vale towards the cost of repairs after visiting fans caused damage to Vale Park.

The derby clash with Stoke Under-21s ended with ‘considerable damage’ caused to the visitors stand – including seats being ripped out, windows smashed and toilets broken.

Over 150 police officers were deployed for the game – which the home side won 4-0 – and 11 arrests were made for violence and public order offences.

Port Vale released a statement on Wednesday, which read: “The club would like to confirm that discussions have been held with Stoke City, following the damage caused in the visitors stand at Vale Park during our Checkatrade Trophy fixture last week.

“As a result of these discussions, Stoke City have agreed to donate their share of the net proceeds from the gate towards the cost of repairs.

“Port Vale Chairman Norman Smurthwaite would like to thank Stoke City for this kind gesture.

“Port Vale will now focus on ensuring that essential repairs are carried out as they prepare for this weekend’s League Two fixture against Cheltenham Town.”
