A tough cup tie for Wigan who in the Quarter Finals had to go up to Workington for a repeat of the 1958 Wembley Final. It was tight for over half hour (Laurie Gilfedder had missed two penalty shots) until Wigan took the lead in the 33rd Minute. A kick failed to find touch and Trevor Lake gathered and started a move that swept from his left wing towards the right. Eventually it was Roy Evans who sent Colin Clarke over and Gilfedder converted for a 5-0 half time lead. Workington came out strong second half but Southward was denied twice by great tackles by Lake. Southward however did kick two penalties to reduce Wigan's lead to just 5-4. That score carried into the final ten minutes when Wigan found a second wind to clinch the tie. A kick return break from Ray Ashby set up the position. On half way he passed to the supporting Cliff Hill who beat three defenders in running the other half of the field. Crucially he cut back inside to make the kick easy for Gilfedder and the two score lead held out at 10-4.
