There are two rarities in this clip – a Simon Mills goal and a gem of a performance from loanee Jason Beckford as Vale beat Grimsby.
About Grimsby Town 1-2 Port Vale video
This Division Two match took place on the 12th October 1991 and was Port Vale’s second away win of the 1991-92 season.
The victory was due to goals from two rare Vale goalscorers. Right-back Simon Mills scored one of just eight Port Vale career goals while loanee Jason Beckford, brother of acclaimed striker Darren, scored his only goal for the club before returning to parent club Manchester City.
The game took place in front of a crowd of 8,218. John Rudge’s Valiants side were sadly unable to repeat the feat later on that season as they lost the final game of the season 1-0 to Grimsby a result which confirmed their relegation from the Second Division.
