Wigan RL History - 1951-52 Season

Click to View: 1950-1951 Season or 1952-1953 Season

BBC Television showed their first match from Central Park in this season when the visit of Wakefield on January 12th 1952 was televised as part of "outside broadcast" experiments by the corporation in the North of England. Only the first half was shown however with clubs wary of coverage affecting ground attendances.
