Is that Joe Lydons less famous elder brother?

Front left is Mike Stacey from Warrington and front right is Mick Walsh. Two notable absences Mike Higham and Peter Brown.

I'm back row 4th from left, getting used to contact lenses!
John Lydon was playing for England schoolboys at the time.

Well remember sitting in 2B,3B and 4B with Jonny Lydon.What a player! Joe is his cousin I believe.Remember Joe going the length of the park to score for Widnes against Wigan at Wembley in their 1984 victory by 19 points to 6. Fortunately Joe returned to the fold and became a true Wigan great!
