Moday 10th September 7.15pm Kick Off: League Match 1 Away V's Lytham
Team: Jacqui Harte/Mike Shinn; Sharman Fanning/Trevor Johnson; Gordon Summers/John Russell; Judy Ryding/Robin Harrison
Match Report: The team could not have had a tougher opening match against a Lytham Team who start as this season league favourites and who only narrowly missed out on promoation last season by a mere 3 VP's. And so it proved with Lytham coming out as victors on the night. However it was not all gloom and doom for the Wigan side as against some players from Lythams first team who also played in last seasons top division (all within the league rules) Wigan did mange a 3VP improvement on the corresponding fixture from last seasons 19-1 defeat
Final Result: Lost 16-4
Wednesday 3rd Oct 2.00pm - 2.30pm Kick Off: League 2 Match Away V's Southport
Team: Pat Holleron/Sharman Fanning; Clive Wood/Mike Shinn; Gordon Summers/ John Russell; Judy Ryding/Ray Mann
Match Report: On to Southport for the 2nd match of the season. The Wigan players went in confident mood hoping to repeat a fine win against the same team from last season. Unfortunately the Southport team were definitely up for revenge as they upped their game to come out overall narrow winners.
However even at this early stage of the season the Wigan team can take comfort in that they lie comfortably placed in mid table (this time last year Wigan were firmly rooted at the bottom of the table with only 6VP's to show for their efforts) and with the next 2 matches being at home against easier opposition they have every opportunity of climbing higher up the table and possibly pushing for a promotion place at the end of the season
Final Result: Lost 12-8
Thursday 25th October 7.15 - 7.30pm Kick Off (possible change to an afternoon start Lancaster to confirm nearer the date): League Match 3 Home V's Lancaster
Proposed Team: Pat Holleron/Eileen Bryan; Gordon Summers/Mike Shinn; Roger Luckhurst/Roger Plamer; Jacqui Harte/Hugh Bishop (replaced by Sharman Fanning)
Match Report: Hoping to pick up their first win of the season against a Lancaster side that lie at the bottom of the table with zero points. The night did not start well when Hugh was taken ill just before kick off and a replacement needed to be found. Fortunately Sharman who was intending to play in the club duplicate stepped in at the last minute. However the disruption and ammendment to the team didnt help as the team sunk to a 19-1 defeat. Plus factor on the night was Eileen Bryan made her debut and pairing with Pat this will help bolster the squad for future matches. On the night inspite of such a heavy loss, the quartet of Eileen/Pat; Roger/Robert did mangae a plus score overall.
Final Result: Lost 19-1
