We are delighted to produce one of the most significant match programmes in the entire history of Port Vale FC – the first Vale Park match programme.
This is the very first matchday programme for the first-ever match at Vale Park – a match versus Newport County which took place in October 1950.
The programme, kindly provided by Stuart Dean, even has a note of the scorer of the first-ever Vale goal at their new ground – Walter Aveyard.
And what’s more, we also have a copy of the original songsheet for the occasion.
Many thanks to Stuart Dean for passing these images to OVF.
