Very well done to Dane Ballard. Dane’s double in the 4-1 home win against Huntly yesterday brought his total for the season so far to 20 goals. This is the first time a Vale player has reached that total since Mike McKenzie scored 20 goals in season 2011-12. With 12 SHFL matches and the SHFL Cup yet to come we hope that Dane can continue adding to his tally. Dane currently stands 5th equal in the SHFL scorers’ chart.
Vale’s goals scored for this season currently stands at 65, a significant improvement on the 52, 57 and 57 scored over the last three seasons and hopefully the remaining games can see us exceed the 74 goals scored in season 2013-14 and get close to the 83 goals in 2012-13.
