Captain Jerome Smart leads his team to a fourth successive win as
Nathan Chambers scores twice, on 20 and 55 minutes.
His first goals for the Vale in only his 2nd full start. Superb news to have
another goal scorer coming to the fore.
Danny Alderton was again a rock at the back and got an assist for the first goal as the defence get
another clean sheet. Well done guys.
Bertrand Marti-Pique had a superb game in central midfield and scored the 2nd goal. ⚽️
Jack Williamson scores a screamer from near the left corner flag. Super narrow angle on the left
almost at the corner flag and hit hard with his left foot and it went in. What the...? 31st goal of the
season for Jack.
Nathan Lewis and Jack Williamson 9 both clock up 41 games this season. Eoin Fraser reaches 40 games. A great achievement by real club men. Superb players that have been a pleasure to watch this season.
Seanan Mckillop went in goal! and kept a clean sheet!! Didn't have much to do but did push a goal bound shot on to the bar in the first half. Well done Sen.
Vale up from 6th to 5th in the league. A superb effort from the team in the last few
weeks. Our 4th league win in a row. Unbeaten in the league for 11 games.
We are a good team and squad now, with a great spirit.
Everyone contributing, a rare thing in life and something very special.
This is a mix of old and new players, friends and personalities who have gelled really well,
and it has shown on the pitch with great shape, discipline, concentration
effort and determination. But it is more than that, there is an intelligence
and emotional sensitivity behind it all too that comes from the players. I supposed that is something that all good teams have but is hard to quantify. Maybe it is called winning. Whatever it is, the team, the players, this group of men have done really well this season and will win things together.
Man of the match. Votes were cast for Bertrand Marti-Pique and Nathan Chambers, it was close
but Nathan Chambers two goals swings it and gets MOTD. Well played guys.
