The opening match of the 1917-1918 war season.
Although a league table was often printed in newspapers, the actual league
competition was suspended for the third year in a row with friendlies being
played on a weekly basis. This match between Wigan and Saints was one of
only two games played on the day and it was contested in "wretched weather".
