Tommy Cheadle, the legendary captain of the “Iron Curtain” side, a former centre-forward, was an ever-present during 1949-1950 and 1952-1953 and formed a formidable defensive partnership with Roy Sproson.

He signed as a professional in 1946 and made his debut later that year.

After an eleven year spell with Vale, he moved to Crewe as player-coach in 1957.

In the noughties, the Port Vale pub is now named “Tommy Cheadle’s” in his honour.
