Wolves ready to celebrate Heritage Month
8:00am Friday 2nd May 2014 in News
2014 is the year of the milestone at Warrington Wolves.
Not only is it 10 years since the first game at The Halliwell Jones Stadium, it is 60 years since Warrington celebrated the double, lifting both the Challenge Cup and Championship trophies.
It is also 40 years since the all-conquering 1974 side made history with their five-trophy haul – Captain Morgan’s Trophy, Challenge Cup, Club Championship Trophy, Players No.6 Trophy and the Locker Cup – with Alex Murphy at the helm.
So the club has decided to brand May Heritage Month, and has organised a packed programme of events to celebrate.
Following this weekend’s beer festival, the May 9 clash with Catalan Dragons will see players from the 1974 squad parade on the pitch.
Alex Murphy will be joined by Derek Whitehead, Barry Philbin, Alan Whittle, Mike Nicholas and Bobby Wanbon on a tour of the turf.
They will also share stories at a corporate dinner package before the game.
The official unveiling of the heritage shirt will also be made at this game.
Entertainment before the Leeds Rhinos clash on May 30 will include Warrington Male Voice Choir singing a medley of Warrington favourites.
While on May 31 there will be a final farewell to Wilderspool day.
