THIS week in Yester Years we are going back to the 1970s.

We love this picture sent in by Malcolm Groarke.

It shows Wire legend John Bevan getting the keys to a new car from Eric Brown from PLP motors, the main Vauxhall dealer in Warrington.

The Welshman was a massive signing for Warrington in 1973 when he joined the Wire from rugby union where he was a Welsh international.

But do you know which year this picture was taken in?

Or do you know any more details?

We would love to know here at Yester Years.

And if you have come across any old pictures of Warrington during lockdown clear-outs, then let us know.

We would love to share the pictures with readers and hopefully shed some light on them.
