1896-1897 Season

 

On August 29, 1895 representatives of the northern clubs met in the George Hotel, Huddersfield to form the "Northern Rugby Football Union" in a breakaway from Rugby Union. The phrase "Rugby League" wouldn't be officially used until 1901.

Prior to the opening of Central Park in 1902, Wigan were playing there home games at a 7,000 capacity ground called Prescott Street (the street still exists off Frog Lane in Wigan Town Centre), which was then the home of Wigan Cricket Club.

Wigan's first game in the NRFU was away at Broughton. William Yates had the honour of scoring Wigan's first and only try of the game as they won 9-0. Our first home game was a 0-0 draw with Tyldesley. Jack Blackburn scored our first home try in our second home match, a 3-0 win over Widnes.

Wigan Final League Position: 10th
League Champions:
Manningham
Lancashire League Winners: Runcorn
