Salford were favourites here but it was Wigan who claimed a record 7th Lancashire Cup success at Swinton. Jim Sullivan had kicked penalties in the 3rd and 13th minute to make it 4-0 before Risman missed with two attempts for Salford. Osbaldestin kicked a drop goal (worth two points) just before half time for a 4-2 score. Right at the start of the Second Half Wigan got another penalty which Sullivan dispatched for 6-2 but Risman claimed two points back with one of his own for 6-4. Then Gear scored a try which put Salford into a 7-6 lead, a third missed goal by Risman though would end up proving costly. Sullivan would go on to kick two more penalties for a 10-7 lead and although Salford hammered the Wigan line, the final whistle eventually relieved the pressure. 27,940 had attended the final paying £1,708 for the privilege.
