WiganlTries:l Wilf Hodder

Jim Sullivan 1


It might have been a midweek but 10,000 turned out for this 1st v 3rd fixture at Station Road. Swinton had not lost at home all season. Jim Sullivan had "failed badly" with two penalty goal attempts in the first half. The game remained scoreless right until the 62nd Minute when a Pearson penalty goal put Swinton 2-0 up. Sullivan quickly equalised before Wilf Hodders' try put Wigan 5-2 ahead. Swinton worked hard to find a try late on but only got another penalty goal from Pearson on 76 minutes. Wigan hung on!
