The Vale Ju­niors were in ac­tion at the week­end as they made the trip to Fuller­ton Park to take on Vale of Clyde in the Cen­tral League.

It was a tough match for the Vale side, and a first half penalty and a sec­ond half goal were not enough to se­cure the points for the team, who lost out 4-2 to their al­most name­sake op­po­nents.

The ac­tion started early for the vis­it­ing Vale, and on 13 min­utes things looked to be go­ing their way when Craig Cowan net­ted a penalty to put his side ahead.

It was end to end for the rest of the first half as both teams tried to find the net, but it was just two min­utes into the sec­ond half that Al­lan MacPher­son beat Clyde keeper Don­ald Scott to get the Vale’s sec­ond of the day.

Things con­tin­ued to go in the Vale’s favour, but it was just af­ter the hour that the Clyde goal on­slaught be­gan.

It was Njabulo Ndlovu who got the first of four goals past keeper Robert Tiropou­los, and within half an hour, three more fol­lowed through Alan Clarke, Ndlovu and Kevin Turner tak­ing the score 4-2.

With Turner’s goal hit­ting the back on the net just two min­utes be­fore full time, the Vale were re­signed to a de­feat.

The un­der 21 team faired slightly bet­ter when they wel­comed St Cadoc’s to Argyle Park for their lat­est match in the Un­der 21 League.

An­thony Pilk­ing­ton and Fraser Forbes scored for the home side, but St Cadoc’s were also quick to find the net, adding two to their tally.The re­sult forced the Vale to set­tle for a draw.

Both sides will be back in ac­tion this week­end, with the first team wel­com­ing La­nark United to Mil­burn Park on league duty on Satur­day.
