TOGETHER again 46 years after they first played, Vauxhall Motors – with a little help from the Pioneer – reunited some of the surviving members of the original works team that became Vauxhall Motors FC.
Back in 1963 workers at the plant, some originally from the firm’s sister plant in Luton, decided to start a works team, as they had done down south.
With former West Brom player Fred Ward in charge the side came together quickly, joining the Ellesmere Port League.
On Saturday, Motors invited those they have been able to trace to the Motassist Arena to receive framed pictures of that 1963 squad on the day the Motormen enjoyed their highest-ever league finish in Blue Square North.
