The top 10 things that make you a Warringtonian

1 You’re a rugby LEAGUE fan, not a football fan or the other type of rugby

Warrington Guardian:

2 Love her or hate her, you’ll always share your opinion on Kerry Katona when she’s in the news 

Warrington Guardian:

3 If you haven’t complained about the Warrington traffic in the last few days, then you’re probably on holiday. And it takes you 45 minutes to get to work/drop the kids off at school every morning – despite the journey being two miles

Warrington Guardian:

4 Mention Warrington to people from other parts of the country and they’ll either moan about being delayed at Bank Quay or reminisce about going to Mr Smiths when they were younger – or mentions Ikea

Warrington Guardian:

5 Despite complaining about the number of pound shops in the town, you still shop in them

Warrington Guardian:

6 You always leave August bank holiday free – just in case....

Warrington Guardian:

7 You tell everyone you meet on holiday that you live inbetween Manchester and Liverpool

8 Have an inherent mistrust of people from Widnes, Wigan or St Helens. And something of a superiority complex over them. And Fiddler's Ferry is deffo Widnes - not Warrington.

Warrington Guardian:

 

9 You have heard of Chapelford but you don’t really know where it is or how to get there

Warrington Guardian:

10 You complain about the state of Bridge Street and the Market and the demise of local shops but do most of your shopping at the big Tesco, Trafford Centre or Gemini anyway

Warrington Guardian:

SO HOW DID YOU SCORE?

7-10 You are as Warrington as primrose and blue, Wireworks and the Golden Gates.

You are Ben Westwood (alright we know he isn't from Warrington but he is Mr Warrington to us).

Warrington Guardian:

4-6 You know how to get to the Town Hall but you probably don't know the name of the Mayor.

You are Chris Evans (famously from Warrington but he doesn't shout about it).

Warrington Guardian:

0-3 You aren't from Warrington at all. You like to think you are but it might take a while to know your Bank Park from your Queen's Gardens.

You are John Bishop (likes to talk about Ikea a lot but is actually just from Runcorn)

Warrington Guardian:

 

Now feel free to add your own...

You feel abused by a spendthrift council with a part time chief, million dollar skittles and 12 thousand euro plant pots while cutting jobs in children's services

You pay £200 per month on finance for your transit van for work.
But you don't go and rob an 87yo pensioner of her life savings to pay for one!

Then they spend a few days behind bars and don't even have to pay it all back, I hope some kind soul tows away their caravans while they are in prison.

Funny fact about the first rugby shot is that the only Warrington-born lad is Joel Tomkins in the Wigan kit !!

You hate driving anywhere near Westbrook or Gemini on the weekend for fear of being stuck behind 20mph scousers and mancs fresh off the M62, with no idea how to get to Ikea or Toys R Us.

I first started playing football over 30 years ago and now my lad plays. I also played Rugby as well and in all that time there was always five to ten times more football teams at all ages than there are Rugby teams.

Go into any school, pub or workplace in Warrington and there are always more football fans than Rugby fans.
