Left field this one from me, but still....

So, not sure if this has been on here before. An outstanding footballer in his time, one goal he scored for Bolton must go down as one of the best of all time. While his "+2" looks good... is it still around I wonder?

As to the goal: it's always nicer when it's not the result of a defender mistake, just a brilliant move! :D

First registered 27 Sep 1968, reported last as being blue, last MoT ran out May 1999, no export marker and last V5 change in Jun 1996.

Frank Worthington, pictured here with his then girlfriend Vikie, was a Leicester City player of some note. It was always hard being a Leicester City supporter, but 2016 was our highlight and worth waiting for!

Here is another shot taken that same day.

DVLA vehicle search says WYG 100G's last tax due was May 1999, so most likely either scrapped or in a barn somewhere (in which case it should show as SORN'd, if declared of course). Unfortunately the DVLA site does not appear to record a "scrapped" status, just "untaxed".

Maybe someone could ask him what he did with it? :?:

I seem to recall George Best had a red Plus 2?
