WARRINGTON secured the league championship for the second successive season in 1954/55.

It was a Brian Bevan try and two Harry Bath goals that secured the 7-3 victory over Oldham in the Championship final at Maine Road with 49,434 watching the game.

And with winning the Lancashire League too it was Warrington's 10th piece of silverware in eight years. Plus they had finished runners-up on four other occasions during that period, the best run of success the club has enjoyed in its entire history.

That Championship success was the last to date for Wire but they did reach the semi-finals again the year after following their Lancashire League success for the third time on the trot.

But Warrington were defeated 17-0 at the Boulevard. The biggest cheers of the year were for the club's three successes at Wigan, a rarity in those days too. There were Wire wins at Central Park in the Wardonia Cup, the Lancashire Cup and in the league.
