With 43 tries in 141 appearances for the Chemics, as well as two Challenge Cup victories for the Vikings in 1981 and 1984, Andy is regarded as one of Widnes' greatest ever half backs. His form for the Chemics was rewarded with his international debut during his time at Naughton Park, and would go on to make 26 caps for Great Britain.

During his time with the Club, Mike has two Championship titles, six Premiership final wins, four Challenge Cup appearances and three John Player Final appearances.

Steve would make over 200 appearances for the Club, scoring 12 tries playing as either a prop, like his brother, or in the second row. Steve has Challenge Cup final experience with the Vikings, making the 1984 side that overcame Wigan, scoring a drop-goal in a 19-6 victory.
