Summary:l

This inaugural Lancashire Cup Final went to this replay held on a Monday Afternoon at the same Wheater's Field venue. The match continued like the first tie with no score for a long time but the deadlock was finally broken when Jim Leytham scored a try just before half time. In the second half Billy Anderson had gone close to a score before an interception was returned by Bert Jenkins for a try, to which Jack Mason converted for 8-0. Wigan never looked like letting that slip and thus became the first ever winners of the Lancashire Cup competition that would run until the 1992-1993 season.
