In this 1988 edition of Shoot magazine, Port Vale were featured due to their epic cup run. This edition ran just before Vale’s fifth round clash with Watford and featured a fascinating revelation from Phil Sproson on how close he came to joining neighbours Stoke City.
The match against Watford finished in a goalless draw before Vale lost the fifth round replay at Vicarage Road.
