Clipping Heroes #11: Unusual photos

In our latest collection of clippings from the archives, we look at some more unusual images from our archives…


The exit is nigh? This image of Jim Gannon was taken just days before he left the club.


And speaking of Gannon, here he is leaving Vale Park for the last time following his sacking.


At one point, Mo Chaudry was seen as the saviour of Vale and so this image of him under a shining star is somewhat poignant.



Not your regular fans but Lemmy, Ozzy Osbourne and Fast Eddie of Motorhead poses with fans outside Vale Park prior to the Heavy Metal Holocaust festival.


A smartly dressed Vale squad (including Roy Sproson with bowler hat) pose in front of the coach during their tour of Czechoslovakia.


England’s David Beckham celebrates in front of a Port Vale flag.


An OVF viewer based in China sent in this image which shows a pair of jeans clearly based on the old Port Vale crest.
