Port Vale Football Club can confirm that Mal Benning has left the club and has joined Shrewsbury Town.
The 29-year-old defender joined the club in July 2021 from Mansfield Town and played 80 times for the Valiants.
Mal wrote himself into Port Vale folklore after getting on the end of David Worrall’s cross and producing a sublime finish in the 2021/22 Play-Off Final against his former club.
“Firstly, as a board we would like to thank Mal for the time he has spent at the club, his contribution to our promotion season was outstanding. Mal has been an consummate professional since the day he arrived and has been fantastic to have in and around Vale Park.
