VALE OF lEITHEN1

Vale rounded off their season with a defeat at Raydale Park, which meant a ninth place finish in the Premier Division.

The Innerleithen side took the lead after 25 minutes when Jack Blaikie sent a free kick into the area and Scott Moffat headed home.

The goal saw Moffat edge ahead of Danny Noon as the club’s top scorer for the season, but Vale’s lead lasted just three minutes as Sergio Royo Okocha fired home an equaliser.

The game turned the home side’s way as they took the lead through Joe Slattery, before Vale were reduced to 10 men for the second game in a row when Noon saw red for remarks to the referee.

In the first minute of the second half Slattery grabbed his second and Gretna dominated the remainder of the game, but they could only manage to breach the Vale backline once more as Alan Inglis scored with a free 
kick from the edge of the 
area.
