Askey, who was sacked by Salop in November, took the reins at Vale Park on a short-term contract in February and guided the League Two side away from relegation.

And Macclesfield legend Askey has penned a new long-term deal at the Valiants – who are under new ownership – after helping the club avoid dropping into non-league.

Askey lost his first four games with Vale but results improved and he assured safety with three games to spare.

He lasted just five months at Montgomery Waters Meadow as a difficult start saw Town go winless in their first nine games.
