Water Main/Irrigation Main

The pipe that goes to irrigation system at main has failed. The joints attaching to the metal shutoff valve were leaking. Cut off the bottom pipe below the failing threads.

My questions are: do I have to replace the metal shutoff with metal - or can a pvc valve work? And, the top and bottom are rigid - what's the best bet for fitting pipe on here?
