Ever-popular Port Vale mascot Boomer will be returning to Vale Park during matchdays.
Boomer has been a fixture at Vale Park for over 20 years. A firm favourite with young and old fans alike, he is often spotted handing out sweets and getting up to mischief.
Sadly, Boomer’s “owner” Gavin Yorke suffered a stroke in October 2014 and the mascot’s appearances at Vale Park had to be curtailed as a result.
However, a Facebook post has confirmed that Boomer is set to return commenting that: “I have been down to Port Vale today , to talk about Gavin doing Boomer again, it was said that it might help his rehabilitation, so this Saturday Gavin will be back doing Boomer , but only on match days .”
OVF is delighted to hear of Boomer’s return. You’ve been missed! Welcome back!
