Port Vale: Rampant Valiants will help pull in potential buyers
PORT Vale's flying start to the season is making the club more attractive to potential buyers.
Administrator Bob Young reckons the impressive form shown by Micky Adams's team can only help in the search for a new owner.
Vale, now third in the League Two table, set the seal on their encouraging start to the campaign with a 6-2 thumping of promotion favourites Rotherham on Saturday, and Young insists good news on the field can only lead to even better news off it.
"It has been a great start and I'm certain such form makes the whole club a more attractive proposition," he said.

"Anyone looking into the possibility of buying it can see the potential.
"They'll be looking at results and thinking they wouldn't have to turn the whole club around.
"The form of the team won't affect the price at all, but if people can see that the team has the ability to succeed anyway, then it's a much more alluring package."
Six parties have declared an interest in buying the club following Lancashire businessman Keith Ryder's failure to complete his £1.3m deal.
Three are still undertaking due diligence work and Young said there had been no further developments.
"We are still talking to several interested parties, but there is nothing new to report," he said.
Young has been impressed by the response of supporters during the first few weeks of the season.
"The supporters' club were particularly helpful in getting the ground ready before the start of the season and, since then, the fans have been backing the team," he added.
"We are breaking even at the moment and that's what we set out to do.
"It's great that the team is doing so well and that can only help attendances."
PORT Vale have won the League Two Performance of the Week award for their 6-2 demolition of Rotherham.
Boss Micky Adams will be presented with an engraved crystal football to mark the honour after a League Managers' Association panel comprising of Howard Wilkinson, Sir Alex Ferguson, Joe Royle, Dave Bassett and Barry Fry voted for the Valiants.
