    Great to see my old Dad Len Barber in these photos. He loved that tour. He spoke about it often.

    Seeing Stan Matthews in the Vale line up reminds me of his comment that he retired from the professional game too early at the age of 50. He looks lean on these photos and the newspaper reports indicate he still had plenty to offer.
    Great to see Mick Morris too. I helped look after Mick in the later part of his life. Really nice and likeable man. Mick was in the Vale team when I started attending Vale Park in the late sixties.
