Not posted on here for a while, so only just read about the terribly sad news of Tony's passing.

Although a year or two younger than myself, Tony's formative years as a Vale fan would have been nothing but witnessing dismal performances. 

But did that stop him loving the Vale? Not on your nelly! 

That's what makes football fans special. It's irrelevant who you follow.

It's not the winning, it's the fact that it's YOUR club and that stays with you for ever where ever you are. And Vale will be with Tony forever. 

Rest in peace Tony. You will be missed by all the Vale Family.

Sorry I’m late posting on this.

 

Known Tony since I was a kid.  One of my first memories is of him walking down Hartshill bank with me and my girlfriend at that time, Tony wearing bondage trousers and on the way to a Stjoke-Vale game.  I just remember Tony diving over the top of the Police cordon to get at the Stokies. Another time we were at Exeter and we got surrounded by their lads – they were bloody huge and singing we are the cider drinkers; next thing I know bing, bang, wallop, Tony’s in amongst them.

 

I’ve lived away from Stoke-on-Trent for over 30 yrs now and, whenever I came home to watch the Vale, I’d always get a massive smile and a hug from Tony.  I just remember him as a wonderful, warm hearted man.

 

R.I.P Tony.  You’ll be missed.
