That's an awesome statistic for the Vale - and, if it is that we can't play newer members of the EFL at some time, and another club matches our recoird - we will always be the first club to avhieve this!

On twitter yesterday a deluded Everton fan was asking how come Vale had beaten his club when they had never been out of the Premiership and we had never been in it. I gently suggested that as we had been in existence since 1876 our paths must have crossed at some point. Another kind soul posted a couple of results from the 1930s where we had indeed beaten Everton.

During the early 50s  Everton spent 3 seasons in the 2nd Division and swapped places with Liverpool as the Vale were promoted to the 2nd .

A sort of hollow achievement. Would rather we were not spending so many years beating non clubs in league 2. One reason we have done it and others have not is because apart from Bradford, no other club with a stronger league history has sunk so low for so long. Except maybe the ex league clubs like Notts County that fell out of the league..

Sort of achievement that a Notts mate used to claim, founder members of the  First, Second, Third South and Fourth Division, but missed out on the Premiership by being relegated in the last season of the Old First Division. Not many people know that as Mr Wise`s mate used to say.

I wonder if we also hold the record of having beaten the most league Teams? The likes of South Shields in the Old second division, or New Brighton at Vale Park? As well the more recent league Visitors?

I’ve seen people questioning this record based on Burslem Port Vale’s liquidation in 1907 and the subsequent renaming of Cobridge Church to Port Vale.

What’s the official line?

Taken to be continuous with a 1876 on the badge?  Would make Arsenal the only League team we have not played since we re-joined the League in 1919.  Is it the same Arsenal that played at Woolwich?

If Rotherham beat Sutton today they will become the ninth team to win the EFL Trophy twice Along with Birmingham,Blackpool,Carlisle,Port Vale,Stoke,Swansea and Wigan.Bristol City are the only team to win it three times.

They will also carry on the recent tradition of having beaten Vale on the way to winning the trophy.  Sunderland last season and Salford the season (day) before!
