This photo comes from a home game played in the 1982-83 promotion season. It was the fourth home game and actually Bob Newton’s first Port Vale goal. Terry Armstrong also scored in front of a crowd of 3,474. Ironically, despite that memorable Newton strike Vale lost the game 2-3. However, Newton would go on to score twenty goals that season and the Valiants would be promoted to the Third Division.
