Wigan had won the John Player Trophy the previous season and their defence began with the visit of Second Division York to Central Park. In October, Wigan had signed Shaun Edwards for £35,000 despite interest from other clubs. Alex Murphy gave him and Steve Hampson debuts here, despite both being only 17 years old, but it was Colin Whitfield who took the main headlines with him scoring 22 of Wigan's 30 points.
