    You can donate your refund to one of several funds. We exiles at SuperValeAbroad would gladly accept it, and use it entirely to support our initiatives in co-operation with the PVFC Foundation. SuperValeAbroad.com/donate

    Port Vale Street

    It’s been a while since I’ve been to McKinney, Texas, but it’s about 45 minutes drive to Port Vale Drive. Takes you, appropriately, through Prosper (which we all hope we will, next season).
  3. Just one final word. A late donation made our grand total a little higher. We raised $2020 in 2020. So far. Thanks to all who stepped up. SuperValeAbroad will be continuing with our fundraising. We hope we can soon go back to providing sponsorship to deserving youngsters, with Matchday Experiences and by funding Mascots.
  4. The winner is Andy Venables, a season ticket holder from Leek. That's east of the Trent, so it counts as overseas, right? Thanks to all the home based Vale fans who joined in, and contributed to the SuperValeAbroad Initiative. A grand total of £2,011 was raised. We will be continuing to raise funds for the new season, whenever that is. At that time, we will revert to our previous aim to support the Port Vale Foundation's work, by sponsoring mascots and matchday experiences for the next generation of Vale fans.
  5. Last day!! Help us provide these Activity Packs to kids in hospital. All donations received will go into tomorrow’s VALE PARK draw by Carol Shanahan DONATE NOW!! www.SuperValeAbroad.com/donate
  6. If you make any donation to @SuperValeAbroad between now and the end of June YOU could win a signed @officialpvfc home shirt! Open to ALL FANS. Donations from SVA members have already helped to send out activity packs across Stoke-on-Trent. We want the PVFC Foundation to be able to buy more to distribute. The goal? To reach and engage the next generation of Vale fans. Read more here [emoji117] ow.ly/xm2I50zG3LE DONATE HERE: www.supervaleabroad.com/donate
  7. I am not sure which section this belongs in, but I wanted to just remind you OVFers that SuperValeAbroad is continuing to raise funds to support the work of the Port Vale Foundation. Our goal is to encourage youngsters to become the next generation of Vale fans. During this season we have been sponsoring Mascots and providing Matchday Experiences for kids. With the season long since over and abandoned, we switched our funding to providing Activity Packs for the children of families receiving meals via the Hubb Foundation. We have opened up donations to all fans and we have secured a signed home shirt as a prize for one lucky donor before the end of June. Owt or nowt, your support is appreciated.

  8. Although I don’t participate in debates on OVF these days, I just wanted to add my condolences to all those who knew Old Sage. We are all getting older and it is obvious from the number of Valiants who have passed lately, that we won’t last forever. God’s mercy on Mike’s soul and comfort for his family.
  9. Whoever we play, we’ll be up against a Robins team we haven’t beaten away since 2005. It’s #ANewEra so it’s going to be our year. Round 3 here we come. Now I’ll go back to lurking...
  10. David Parton covered Stevie Wonder’s song and had a huge hit. But he also wrote a song which had previously been a hit for Sweet Sensation called ‘Sad Sweet Dreamer’. Saw him and the Cyril Dagworth Players at Strikes in Burslem.
  11. Despite the distance, I’ve got to know Mark quite well in recent years. A better man you could not find, to head the supporters club. He has shown his integrity, perseverance and character, over the last year. Top bloke.

    Ian Donaldson - CEO Autonet and Carole Nash Ian co-founded Autonet in 1998 in Stoke-On-Trent, and successfully led the business to achieve turnover of one million pounds after just two years.

In 2010, Autonet launched a van price comparison site for moneysupermarket.com and in 2016 he oversaw investment from Highbridge Principal Strategies and Madison Dearborn Partners before becoming part of The Ardonagh Group. In January 2018, Ian was appointed CEO of Carole Nash in addition to his leadership of Autonet. (From the Ardonagh Group website)
  13. I'm happier that our squad is occasionally very good, even though inconsistent, rather than being consistently bad.
  14. Are you Eddie, in disguise?
