Karl Proctor's aka werstayinup suggestion to conduct a 'Guess the 1st Goal' competition c2006 gave rise for me putting a little 'pelf' into the 'Club's coffers and for doing my bit for all things Port Vale. Then, with Onevalefan providing the perfect platform to run the competitions and Andy Burgess arranging 'Club Shop vouchers for the winners the rest, as we say, is history.
