Mal Aspey, Widnes' record try scorer, gave an exclusive interview ahead of his appearance at the upcoming Lunch With Legends event.

Aspey scored a a phenomenal 236 tries in 575 games. Famously, Aspey won the Harry Sunderland trophy in the 1979 Premiership victory, and collected Challenge Cup winners medals in 1975 and 1979.

In the video above, watch Mal speak to Widnes Vikings' Head of Commercial, Dave Rolt, about his Wembley memories and experience playing for the great Vince Karalius.

Key Quotes:

On the 1975 Cup Final: "It was quite emotional for me. My grandad and great uncle played for Widnes, so I was very emotional going past the twin towers. The spectators then were off another planet - just great. You had people like Pat Price, it was just incredible."

On Vince Karalius: "He made us - he was special. Some of the things he used to say and do were fantastic. He was a great man."
