Here are a few video clips of Lions’ matches and TV appearances, transferred from VHS video to my computer, then in recent years onto YouTube. As the tapes were all at least 10 years old when I put them onto my PC back in around 2000 or 2001 and I was restricted by the technology available at the time, it’s not surprising the quality isn’t great. I originally had the videos available in WMV format, but these days it’s easier to watch them on YouTube.
The copyright on these clips remains with the original cameramen or programme-makers, although I created the clips from video tapes and put them into a format suitable for internet use.

Greg Moore getting checked on a TV ad for Ford Escorts (blink and you’ll miss him – much like his time with the Lions, really, because he sodded off to Bracknell as soon as they realised the Lions had found themselves a good player). Not sure who the other player is, possibly Darrin Zinger?:
