    The 1954 photo shows part of the Blackpool Crazy Gang in front of the Hamil crowd, as Cup Holders they put on a good show and paraded around the running track, there may even have been a goose sprayed tangerine. Happy days, all good fun, no segregation, the odd punch up but they were soon parted by people close by. I was in that crowd but to the right of the photo.

    in your port vale mascots the clown 3rd from left is my grandfather.
    I was 9 years old when he died in 1963. I remember playing with the outfit as a boy as it was kept in his wardrobe. I was born the year that photo was taken.
    his name was enos potts from bradeley and later norton.
