The Lancashire Cup First Round was being held over two legs with Wigan visiting Oldham for the start of this tie. A Thunder Storm hit Watersheddings just before kick off and changed the conditions dramatically with heavy showers continuing for most of the game. Oldham took the lead with a 20th Minute penalty by Ogden before Flanagan made it 5-0 at half time with a try. Wigan levelled second half with a try from Gordon Ratcliffe that was converted by Jack Taylor but a dropped goal from Smith saw Oldham claim a narrow 7-5 advantage before the return leg at Central Park.
