Wigan had been used to "Wigan Derbies" in recent years with Wigan Highfield playing in the league, but this was a Wigan Derby of a different kind with amateur club Pemberton Rovers visiting Central Park in the Challenge Cup. Whilst Wigan Highfield played at Tunstall Lane in Pemberton, this Rovers side played in Lamberhead Green, with strong connections to the Working Men's Club, which remains on White Street at the back of the "White Swan" pub. The match was very much the Johnny Ring show with his seven tries equalling his own most tries in a match record for Wigan. In fact this was the third occasion Ring had scored seven in a match for Wigan.
