About the game

This game was Vale’s first outing in the FA Cup since their heroics the previous season (which had seen them unluckily beaten in the semi-final). It took place on the 8th January 1955 and ended in a creditable 2-2 draw with Vale recovering from being two goals down. Stan Smith and Dickie Cunliffe were the scorers for the Valiants in front of a crowd of 20,264. The replay saw Vale triumph 3-1 thanks to goals from Smith, Cunliffe and Albert Leake in front of a crowd of 11,963.
