THIS fascinating cine film shows famous faces of the 1960s and 1970s at a charity football match played at Warrington Town's Lousher's Lane ground.

The footage, shared by Guardian reader Mike Waller, appears to show the well-known names involved being introduced to a bumper crowd gathered for the event.

Freddie Garrity, best known as the frontman for beat band Freddie and the Dreamers, is among them along with two of Warrington's own stars of show business and sport.

Singer/actress Barbara Law, who grew up in Howley and had a performance career spanning seven decades until she died in 2018, was an interested spectator.

Ex-England international footballer Freddie Worrall, who won the FA Cup with Portsmouth in 1939 and managed Warrington Town for a 13-year spell in the 1950s and 60s, was among the players that day.

The footage, thought to be from the late 1960s/early 1970s, is also a great insight into how the ground and the area around it looked at that time, with the Cantilever bridge very much dominating the landscape.
