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.
