Raynes Park win despite being behind twice in the game at 0-1 and 1-2.
Vale skipper Danny Alderton plays in midfield as opposed to his usual centre back position.
Jack Williamson scores his 7th goal of the season, centre back James Curran his 1st and midfielder Eoin Fraser his 3rd of the season,
a positive glut after scoring no goals in 2017/18 (despite plenty of assists). Great to see.
Also good to see Seanan Mckillop starting to provide assists again with two in this game for his 5th of the campaign.
There was drama late on in the 90th minute as Vale 'keeper Billy O'Carroll brings down an on-rushing
Spelthorne forward. The referee awards the penalty. The pen is hit low, close to the post but
Billy gets across and saves it! Mighty relief as the 3 points are finally secured
Vale's left wing back Ato Okai is then sent off for a 2nd yellow in the closing stages
for something said to the opposition.
So after a tough game Raynes Park finally beat Spelthorne in the teams 4th
encounter of the season .
1-1 FA Cup home draw
3-4 FA Cup replay away after extra time
1-2 Southern Combination Cup away
3-2 CCL Prem home win.
[i]still the away League game to come
The players are delighted with the win which sees the Vale up to 11th in the table.
