GOALS from Chris McCann, Charlie Austin and Dean Marney ensured there would be no cup upset at Vale Park. But the Clarets were made to work for their 3-1 triumph and progression in the competition, despite being dominant in the opening 45 minutes against their League Two opposition. The hosts started brightly, pressing Eddie Howe’s side high up the field, and their endeavour was rewarded when Ashley Vincent was bundled over by Kieran Trippier 20 yards from goal; Chris Shuker floating the resulting set-piece beyond everybody in the box and in to the far corner. There was an air of fortune about the opener. Shuker clearly hadn’t shaped to shoot, though the result was reward for a well-executed set-piece. However, the Clarets refused to let their heads drop and were level within a minute courtesy of Chris McCann’s close range header from a Ross Wallace corner. That equaliser clearly had an effect on Micky Adams’s side as the players in pink sat off their opponents, wary of conceding a ...

AFC end long season on end of a beating
Sussex Express - almost 5 years
AFTER a long season of 47 games, a cup final and an eighth place finish in the club’s first term at this level, AFC went into the final match against a Lancing team determined to finish in second place. There were few changes to the side that beat relegated Chichester 4-1 the previous week, with the exception being Jamie Wright joining the bench from the reserves. The Lancers started off at a whirlwind pace clearly intent on securing all three points for that all-important runners-up medal. The first quarter of an hour was all in favour of the visitors with little reply from the hosts as the back four got pulled out of shape time after time by the movement of the league’s top goal scorer Charlie Walker. Thirteen minutes in and some indecision to come and claim by the Uckfield keeper Tom Betts resulted in a soft opening goal for Walker. A further goal was rightly disallowed for offside three minutes later. Young Betts then redeemed himself for his earlier mistake with a succession ...

He played two games at Keepmoat Stadium before his loan spell was ended by Port Vale on 20 February as injury to Jak Alnwick restored Neal to the Vale first team. He retained his first team place at Vale until on 18 March, when he joined Bury on loan until the end of the season. After making a good start to his time at Gigg Lane, he told the Bury Times that he hoped to join the club permanently on a free transfer. He was released by Port Vale upon the expiry of his contract at the end of the season. Neal signed a two-year contract with League One side Fleetwood Town in May 2016, and joined the club shortly after the departure of Chris Maxwell.
  • 2014
    Neal started the 2014–15 season on the bench, as Johnson was selected for the season opener.
    More Details Hide Details After returning to the starting line-up in September he won praise for his performances. He again earned praise in December for a series of consistent performances and impressive saves in close games. He remain the first choice goalkeeper until he was suspending after being sent off in a 3–1 defeat at Leyton Orient. He returned to the first team following his suspension, and was one of the most consistent performers of the season.
  • 2013
    Neal made a strong start to the 2013–14 season before injuring his wrist at the end of November.
    More Details Hide Details After returning to fitness he displaced deputy goalkeeper Sam Johnson and retained his first team spot until he damaged his ankle ligaments in a challenge with Tranmere Rovers defender Ian Goodison on 22 March; the resulting injury kept him out of action for the rest of the season.

    More Details Hide Details However three days later he dropped a "clanger" at Vale Park as a weak 25 yard shot from Dagenham & Redbridge midfielder Luke Howell "somehow squirmed beneath the embarrassed keeper and trickled into the Vale net" in a disappointing 1–1 draw. He began wearing protective face gear after bruising his cheekbone against Dagenham, and then continued to wear the gear as he superstitiously believed they were essential to the team's run of good results (however he stopped this practice after a run of defeats in December). He made "a string of flying stops during a man-of-the-match display" in an FA Cup defeat to Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on 1 December. He remained a near ever-present, playing 51 games as Vale were promoted at the end of the season in third-place, and was voted as both the Port Vale's players' player of the season and away fan's player of the season.
    He failed to agree fresh terms with Shrewsbury, having only been offered a one-year deal, and instead signed a two-year contract with Port Vale in July 2012, having impressed manager Micky Adams in a match between the two clubs some months earlier.
    More Details Hide Details He admitted that he had expected to stay at the New Meadow, but that he was happy to switch clubs in an attempt to win promotion out of League Two for a second successive season with the "Valiants".
  • 2011
    He made his first League Two appearance of the 2011–12 season on 8 October, but remained between the sticks for the rest of the season, as Shrewsbury won promotion as the division's runners-up.

  • 2010
    He began the 2010–11 campaign as the "Shrews" preferred keeper following an injury to rival Ben Smith, but lost his first team place in November after 20 appearances, and only played a handful of games thereafter as a fit again Smith was preferred by manager Graham Turner.

At the end of the season he was signed by Morecambe as an emergency loan after the club's regular custodian Steven Drench dislocated an elbow, leaving manager Sammy McIlroy to choose between Davies and Neal for the Conference National play-off final at Wembley. Despite being awarded a winners medal he did not spend any time on the pitch for the Lancashire club as the club's rookie goalkeeper, Scott Davies, proved up to the task of keeping goal in the club's successful promotion bid. Neal did not make a senior appearance in 2007–08 or 2008–09 under either Paul Simpson or Alan Irvine. During this time he shook off a bout of conjunctivitis.
