On loan forward Dennis Politic netted twice as Port Vale beat Stockport County 3-0 in a friendly match on Tuesday.
The other Vale goal came from another loanee, Cheltenham Town forward George Lloyd.
The Valiants have been using friendly games to ensure squad players stay fit and nine first-team players featured in this match.
Politic has yet to make a first-team appearance as Darrell Clarke carefully manages his return to action after injury last season, but these goals will help to push his claims for minutes in future matches.
The Port Vale first teamers to play were Aidan Stone, Danny Amos, Mal Benning, Ryan Johnson, Alex Hurst, Jake Taylor, Dennis Politic, George Lloyd and David Amoo.
The 3-0 win over Stockport County was the club’s third friendly of the season. It follows a 2-0 win over Burnley and another game against an unnamed side which finished 8-1 in Vale’s favour.
