This photograph shows central midfield pairing Ray Walker (left) and Robbie Earle (right). The duo are regarded by many as the ultimate Port Vale midfield pairing. Walker was an elegant playmaker and free-kick expert while Earle was an energetic box-to-box midfielder. Between them the duo made just under a thousand appearances and won promotion three times (Earle) and twice (Walker).
