Port Vale 2-1 Everton video, 1996

Why not relive one of Port Vale’s greatest moments, the St Valentine’s day FA Cup massacre of FA Cup holders Everton in 1996?

More about the Port Vale 2-1 Everton video

The game was an FA Cup replay after the Valiants had secured a commendable away draw at Goodison Park.

Port Vale made no mistake in the second game. Midfielder Ian Bogie and winger Jon McCarthy were the goal heroes in front of a packed crowd at Vale Park as John Rudge’s side sent the then FA Cup holders packing. Today the game is remembered as one of the most complete performances by a Rudge side as they more than matched their top-flight opponents with some stunning football on display.

This particular video is taken from our OVF YouTube channel (you can subscribe here) and is a vintage Match of the Day clip (commentary by the late Tony Gubba) of Vale’s famous Valentine’s Day win. The video clip also includes post-match interviews.

Editor’s note: keep an eye out for the linesman caught in the Port Vale celebrations on three minutes and eleven seconds.
