Wikipedia, viewed 10 October 2019 (Port Vale Football Club; professional association football club based at Vale Park in Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent, England; the 1876 date of formation is disputed: Port Vale F.C. was probably formed in 1879 as an offshoot of Porthill Victoria F.C. and took its name from the valley of canal ports where the team played; moved to Burslem in 1884, changing its name to Burslem Port Vale; moved to Cobridge in 1885; liquidated after the end of the 1906/07 season; however, the name of Port Vale was continued after minor league side Cobridge Church opted to change their name; the new club moved to the Old Recreation Ground in Hanley in 1912, then to Vale Park in 1950)
