League Records

This afternoon a carol singer was heard at my doorstep. When I opened the door it was Walter Green carrying a bag of small booklets.

These turned out to be his collection of Wigan League Handbooks going back some 45 years or more.

I have been able to extend our Honours Board on the website back to 1970/71

Walter is missing just two books, those for 1972/73 and 1996/1997. There are still some players around who go back a long way in the League. Witness for example the Division Two singles final in 1970/71 - this was the match which inspired the film Beauty and the Beast!

Please have a look if you have any of the missing books or you are perhaps still in contact with ex players who may have them and let either me or Walter know.

Finally, Happy Christmas to all our readers.
