Manager Micky Adams took plenty of positives as Port Vale saw off North Sound SeaWolves 3-1 in the opening match of their North American tour.

Marc Richards, Sean Rigg and Lewis Haldane got the goals as Vale stepped up their preparations for the new season, with Tacoma Tide FC next up on Sunday afternoon.

Adams told Vale's official website: "We're happy with the work-out, I think the boys worked extremely hard. We played against a young, vibrant SeaWolves side who gave us a severe test. All in all, it's been worthwhile."

He added: "We scored some good goals and I think their goalkeeper was man of the match, he made some outstanding saves and did really well."

The only disappointment was an ankle injury which forced off talismanic striker Richards midway through the first half, as well as youngster Phil Roe who picked up a hamstring problem.

"We need to assess Marc over the next 24 hours," said Adams.

"We don't want to make hasty decisions about him. It was nobody's fault that he got injured, he just went past the goalkeeper and tripped over the ball.

"It was unfortunate."
