RUGBY league is in the blood in Widnes.

And as we wait for news today on the future of the Vikings it is a poignant time to reflect on a stock of pictures former Runcorn and Widnes World photographer Glen Cameron sent from the time he covered the Chemics.

Glen is back home living in Australia - but recalls his time fondly in the town.

Among them was this pictorial pearl of a determined young lad going for the line.

Do you recognise yourself - or your son, brother, husband - from this picture circa 1980-82?

If so, email

We have also attached some crackers from Glen's Chemics archive from the early 80s, with Brian Lockwood below and several others in the gallery.
