This news is actually 3 or 4 days old but Port Vale fans seem happy with the appointments on their forum.
However,the new management duo got off to a bad start yesterday with Vale losing 2-1 at home to Grimsby in front of a crowd of 5,849.

Former Port Vale defender Neil Aspin has left National League side Gateshead to return to the struggling League Two club as their new manager.
Vale, who are 22nd in the fourth tier, sacked Michael Brown on 16 September.
Aspin, 52, who made 410 appearances for Vale in 10 seasons, won 39 of his 100 games as Gateshead boss in almost two years as manager.
Former Vale boss John Rudge will also return to Vale Park to work with Aspin as the club's director of football.
Rudge, 72, previously spent almost 14 years as Vale manager from December 1984 to January 1999, encompassing almost all of Aspin's Vale career.
He then spent a further 14 years in the Potteries as director of football with Vale's neighbours Stoke City until 2013, since when he has scouted for Hull City.

After the international break, it's back to real football this weekend.
In the championship, no easy games for any of the fancied teams. The main game is, obviously, Leeds taking on Reading. :lol:
Can the mighty whites bounce back to winning ways after a couple of dire performances?
Here's hoping.

Bob,you are getting a little ahead of yourself as Leyton Orient v Macclesfield Town is next Saturday 21st October ;)

Tomorrow is the FA Cup 4th qualifying round and a chance for the minnows to get a chance to play the "big clubs" like Cheltenham,Port Vale and Forest Green in the next round ! :-s
Some decent ties,including....
AFC Fylde v Wrexham
Aldershot v Torquay
Dagenham & Redbridge v Leyton Orient
Dover Athletic v Bromley
FC Halifax Town v Tranmere Rovers
Scarborough Athletic v Hyde United
South Shields v Hartlepool
Stourbridge v Macclesfield Town

Hey,and you've forgotten Leeds v Reading and Norwich v Hull in the Championship ! :D

And for those who enjoy the romance of the FA Cup,Sunday sees Shaw Lane Association of the 7th tier Northern Premier League entertain Barrow.
Just when I thought our chance had passed,you go and save the best for last.

Thanks for RE highlighting the weekends main fixture Bob...and another local derby as the Iron take on Rotterham only 30 miles away ... Scunny need to get back to winning ways so not to loose ground at the top of the table . the several thousand Iron fans making the short trip have been reminded to make sure their Typhoid , Tetnus and Coal dust jabs are up to date ..

Elsewhere Leeds take on Reading after 2 totally crap performances they really need to get back o the winning trail again.

As Greavsie used to say, it is a funny old game.
Birmingham couldn't buy a win under 'Arry. New (old :D ) boy Steve Cotterill comes in & they beat top of the table Cardiff, not even letting them get a shot on target..
Fellow strugglers Burton, make a real game of it against high flyers Bristol City..

Leeds United 0 1 Reading
Rotherham United 2 0 Scunthorpe United
Forest Green Rovers 0 4 Newport County AFC
Port Vale 3 1 Cheltenham Town
Macclesfield Town 1 0 Ebbsfleet United
Not too much to keep Udon readers happy...
EXCEPT
Vale easily brush aside a Town side having a very bad day & Macclesfield keep to the top of the National League - although the 4 below them all won as well!!

Thank you for your mention of Macclesfield,Bob,but I feel I must point out to the thousands of interested readers of this thread that Macclesfield v Ebbsfleet was the previous Saturday ! :-$
Yesterday was the FA Cup 4th qualifying round and the score was Stourbridge 0 Macclesfield 5 \:D/ so Macc are in the first round draw along with "big guns" like Forest Green :-s ,Cheltenham :-s ,Port Vale and Scunthorpe.
But despite this minor blip your sterling efforts on the Grass Roots Footie forum are much appreciated by everyone :D

Blame the BBC and their bloomin changes to the website so as a few "Richard Craniums" can access the info from their telephones :evil:

Telephones for Phone calls
Computers for web surfing
Cameras for pictures

The old midweek League games always catch me out..
Mind you there is usually very little for me to get enthusiastic about - the same this week!!
Scunthorpe United 1 1 Fleetwood Town
Cheltenham Town 2 3 Grimsby Town
Coventry City 0 1 Forest Green Rovers
Morecambe 0 3 Port Vale
Town starting to slip back towards the bottom while, at the same time, the bottom is starting to move up!! Chesterfield, Rovers & Vale all win & reverse the gap that was developing between them & the rest..
