Neil Aspin believes win over Cambridge gives fans belief ahead of the new season

6 August 2018

Vale's opening game of the 2018/19 EFL League Two season could not have gone much better as Aspin's side cruised to a 3-0 victory over Cambridge United at Vale Park.

After a long pre-season, players and fans alike were eager to get their footballing calender underway, and the gaffer could not have been happier with his sides performance last Saturday in their 3-0 win over Cambridge United.

Two goals from Vale Captain Tom Pope, as well as a debut goal for Ricky Miller saw the Valiants cruise to victory over the U's, gaining their first three points of the season.

The boss said: "It was a really good day, really positive.

"It sets everything up as we want everyone to be positive, we want everyone to believe that we can improve and we can make it a better season.

"It's only one game, but for at least this weekend, the supporters have gone home happy and they've gone home with belief.

"That's so important when you support a football club."

The Vale boss has also paid tribute to life-long Vale fan, Tony Evans, who sadly passed during last Saturday's opening game and believes it can put things into perspective for everyone involved in the game.

"We all take football seriously, especially myself and sometimes it takes something like this to realise, it is only a game.

"It's an awful thing to go to a football game and not return home.

"Myself and everyone at the club send our condolences to the family."
