Widnes go into Administration


Recommended Posts

Must say I was a gutted when I heard that Widnes had gone into administration. :( I was hoping that they would get promoted and I could once more look forward to the Wire v Vikings derby matches.


Wire v Huddersfield just doesn't have the same appeal :roll:


With ICI and the rest of the chemical industry now moved out of Widnes I suppose the sponsorship just isn't there.

I was very jealous of the Widnes side in the 80's and 90's. They played some of the best rugby I have ever seen and that includes the present day Stains. World club champions was one hell of an achievement for such a small club.


I hope that they can get back in business asap.

Apparently they were named Club of the Year at this year's Co-operative National League Awards. :roll: so not much hope for the rest.

Think the players knew the problems as 8 of the team that played in the National League final had already signed contracts for Super League clubs. :o
