Port Vale’s Checkatrade opponents confirmed

The draw for the opening stages of the 2018-19 Checkatrade Trophy has been made.

The Valiants have been put into Group E of the Northern section with their opponents being: Burton Albion, Middlesbrough B and Walsall.

Controversially, the tournament still allows B sides from the Premier League and Championship  to take part in what was originally called the FOOTBALL LEAGUE Trophy.

  1. In my opinion, it is good that Vale have avoided playing the Stoke City B team, as I find it insulting to face our biggest rivals on the basis of competing wi is effectively their reserves.
    It really is time this competition went back to the original format and gave those who progress well in it something t be proud of.
