My 2nd game was vs Jimmy Hill's Coventry City, Vale won 2-1. Records show it was on 22nd September 1962 and there was a big crowd of 9,816.  I too can remember the sky blue and white scarves.

My Mum and Dad weren't football fans and I used to go with my Grandad and my mate and his dad. We didn't have much money so I couldn't go to every game.  Mum used to give me half a crown (2sh 6d) and that used to buy round trip bus fare from Kidsgrove to Boslem, entrance to the Vale and a program and if my memory serves me right there was some change left.
