Checkatrade Trophy: Port Vale vs. Stoke City (U21) (4-0)
It was the first Potteries derby, after 16 years.
The police claimed that around the derby match, there was atmosphere, like in the 80’s. At least 200 officers were deployed to control the crowd of 8,000 – half of them Stoke fans. Over 12 people were arrested, one steward injured and away end destroyed by Stoke fans.
Port Vale player Luke Hannant, goal scorer at 4-0 , picks up a bottle of beer thrown at him by Stoke’s fans, drinks a little and throws her back.
Stoke fans left the toilets at Port Vale.
