Summary:l

Whilst league and cup chances had long been gone, Wigan were playing in this league game to win the mini South West Lancashire League trophy that in these days was competed for between Leigh, Runcorn, St Helens, Warrington, Widnes and Wigan. The league results between those clubs counted towards the trophy and Wigan led the way after they beat Leigh here 17-5. Tries from Llew Treharne and Billy Hector helped Wigan into an 8-2 half time lead and Wigan scored three tries second half, two for Treharne to complete his hat-trick and one for Johnny Thomas, none of which were converted. Leigh found a try which at one point made the score 14-5 but Wigan never looked like letting this slip.
