1967: Chapman arrives and Czech tour

We take a look at events in 1967 as we reproduce several cuttings from a Vale scrapbook. These include the signing of Roy Chapman and the summer tour of Czechoslavakia.

The following clippings are from the 1967-68 pre-season. Vale’s manager was Stanley (later Sir Stanley) Matthews and the club were in the Fourth Division.
