Lamb points the way for lowly Vale

Vale of Leithen take on Edinburgh University away from home this week in a Lowland League encounter, writes John Slorance.

Vale are looking to get more points on board to improve their lowly position and manager Mark Lamb told The Southern: “We are a young team competing in a very competitive league, and it’s going to be a long, hard season for our players.

“It’s our aim to remain in the Lowland League and I have set us a target of 25 points. So far we have picked up 13 points and I am quite happy about this considering we have such a small squad.”
