Wigan RL History - 1921-22 Season
Click to View: 1920-1921 Season or 1922-1923 Season

In June 1921 Wigan signed Welshman Jim Sullivan for £750. It was money well spent as he went on to hold the records for most Wigan appearances (774), goals (2317) and points (4883) - records that he still holds today and will take some beating. He was an extraordinary goal kicker who finished as the leagues top goal kicker in 16 of the next 18 seasons!! Jim spent the next 31 years at Central Park having made his debut in the opening match of this season and his last Wigan appearance wouldn't be until February 1946!! In 1932 he was appointed player coach and after semi-retiring in 1944 he coached the very successful post war Wigan team until the end of 1951-52.
