KICK OFF:3.00pm


Vale finish their South West Tour at Southern Football League South & West Division side Tiverton Town tomorrow (Saturday). After winning their matches against Bodmin Town and Plymouth Parkway earlier on this week Micky Adams’ men will be looking to make it three out of three at Ladysmead.


Tiverton, like the Valiants, are currently unbeaten so far during their pre-season campaign, but may see their luck run out against an in form Vale side 5 levels above them in the leagues. Their unbeaten run is even more impressive taking into account that the Yellow’s manager Martyn Rogers is reportedly in the middle of moulding his squad for the upcoming campaign.

The veteran striker scored an incredible will be hoping to impress against the Vale.Recent signing Jamie Mudge, who is coming into his third spell with the club after being at Ladysmead in 2001 and 2009


Going into the match Richard Duffy and Tom Pope who were left out against Bodmin Town, are expected to return to the fold in good time for the start of the season.

Ignore the first junction for A396 Tiverton and Bickleigh (Gornhay Cross) and keep going (this is important) a little further until you reach a large roundabout. Turn left at the roundabout take first exit (A3126) for the Town Centre and Castle, continue along that road for about 400 yards crossing a new roundabout, passing a college, and our youth sections field on the left and Tiverton Rugby Club on right until you meet a mini roundabout.
