Port Vale F.C. - Port Vale F.C. / Blackpool F.C. (1953-54)

2 photos

Port Vale reached the semi-final of the F.A. Cup in 1953-54 and for the 5th Round cup tie against Blackpool they included two team photos as an insert to the match programme. The photos were printed on one sheet that was stapled into the middle of the programme but the other side of the sheet is blank. Thanks to bisphamseasider for the scan and the information...
The photographic insert was likely to be the only one that season because the club notes say "To celebrate the occasion we introduce a souvenir programme which we hope with its hard paper photographs of the two teams will be worth preserving". 
The programme is a 16 page issue with the extra 4 pages showing the teams and blank on the reverse. 
There were no other home cup ties after this victory which would warrant another insert.
