Rigg: Fresh start
Port Vale have boosted their squad for the 2010/11 season by securing the services of Sean Rigg on a two-year deal.
The 21-year-old striker joined Vale on loan from Bristol Rovers last November, going on to make 26 appearances and score three goals as Vale just missed out on the League Two play-offs.
As expected, Rovers chose to release Rigg at the end of the season having also sent him out on loan to Forest Green at the start of the campaign.
But Vale boss Micky Adams jumped at the chance to sign Rigg up to a two-year contract.
Lots to offer
"I'm delighted Sean has opted to sign a contract with Port Vale as I feel he has a lot to offer," he told the club's official website.
"Our plans are now coming together ahead of next season and it won't be long before the hard work starts again when the players report for pre-season training in July."
Rigg, who can operate on the left of midfield or up front, made his league debut in August 2006 - still six weeks before his 18th birthday.
He went on to make 75 appearances for Rovers, 56 as a substitute, scoring three goals, while he spent another stint on loan in non-league with Grays Athletic in September 2008.
