CONNOR Hall has left Colchester United and re-joined their League Two rivals Port Vale.

The 31-year-old has joined the Valiants for an undisclosed fee, signing a contract until the summer of 2026, at Vale Park.

Port Vale boss Darren Moore told the Port Vale website: “Connor brings with him a wealth of experience and a style of play that our supporters will already be familiar with.


“First and foremost, Connor is a leader, as proven after being named as Colchester United’s captain last season, who will bring great balance to our back line.

"He is comfortable with the ball at his feet, loves to defend and is a real threat in both boxes.

“Off the pitch, Connor will also be a player that the youngsters within our squad and Academy can learn from and look up to as they make their way into professional football.

“I am delighted to welcome him into our squad as we move towards next season.”


Hall joined Colchester in January 2023 from Port Vale.

The former Harrogate Town defender made 63 league and cup appearances for the U's during his time with the club, scoring twice.

Hall was named club captain in July 2023 and made 43 appearances for the U's, last season but has now departed for a fresh challenge, after returning to his old club Vale.
