A special section on Vale’s most celebrated side – Freddie Steele’s “Iron curtain” (or as referred to by some “Steele curtain”) side.
Thanks to Stuart Dean, we have a short documentary clip of Port Vale’s 1954 record-breaking side.
Thanks to OVF reader Paul Rafferty, we have an image of Vale’s crucial FA Cup goal against Leyton Orient – the strike that secured Port Vale’s place in the semi-finals.
Exclusive images and contemporary text from the ‘Pride of Port Vale’ booklet. The book celebrated the achievements of the legendary 1954 ‘Iron Curtain’ side. These are the original text and cartoons that appear in the 1954 booklet.
