About the Vale Vaults exhibition
In 2014, onevalefan.co.uk website editor Rob Fielding had just received three amazing Port Vale FC scrapbooks through the post. While scanning the stunning images for his website, he considered the huge amount of Valiants memorabilia he had collected or been given.’Wouldn’t it be great if I could show it off to Vale fans?’ he pondered.
This thought gradually progressed into the Vale Vaults exhibition, which was the first-ever fans-based, free exhibition of Port Vale FC memorabilia which was held during the 2014-2015 football season.
During the weekend of the exhibition, over 900 fans attended the exhibition which was held at the Barewall Gallery in Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent. Exhibits on display included Port Vale programmes, press clippings, Port Vale kits, artwork and many more items of memorabilia from the club’s history. The event also received much positive feedback from fans who attended it.

We were delighted to be handed this programme during the Vale Vaults exhibition. It marks the visit of Czechoslovakia to Vale Park, the first time a national side had played either of the Potteries sides. The next year, the Czechs reached the 1962 World Cup final.
