There was mixed news for former Valiants in non-league action this week as OVF takes a look at how our old boys fared…
Please note this round-up is focused solely on Vale players in the non-league…
George Pilkington again missed out on a starting place after being dropped from the starting eleven following Town’s 4-1 defeat to Gateshead. But former Valiants Jake Speight, Louis Briscoe, Ritchie Sutton and Gary Roberts all played in the game against Grimsby. It was an unhappy match for Roberts who was dismissed on 81 minutes, while Town’s leaky defence conceded four goals for the third time this season as they ended up losing 4-1 to the Mariners.
