Port Vale have sent youngsters Jonathon Kapend and Billy Reeves out for loan spells to give them the chance to get some invaluable first-team experience with non-league clubs, which always makes sense and seems the right thing to do.

Kapend has left for a short-term loan with Kidsgrove Athletic with Reeves doing likewise to join Hyde United, both are initially one-month deals.

Rob Page told the Official Website, much as I’ve said, these were deals well worth making as all will benefit.

‘Once again this is a great opportunity for thee younger lads to go out and play men’s football. We’ve seen how beneficial that can be in the past and we’re hoping it continues to have the same effect.’

Whilst speaking of Page, ahead of the weekend game, the boss (and if you’re not positive why bother) has talked up Vale’s play-off hopes questioning ‘why shouldn’t’ this be possible.

Why not indeed!

Going back to these loans both left with the clubs best wishes, as you would expect, with them scheduled to return to Vale Park on 12th March.
