Have you got your own Favorite Moment from the Biff Era that you would like to Share with us ...


This story was relayed by Pete Barker the son of Harry Barker

Pete wrote: "as you will appreciate my Dad is in his 80's. And a lifelong Wigan fan."

I will now write his words verbatim;
Going to school in Wigan in the 1930's was enjoyable although we had nothing, but as everybody we knew was in the same boat , we didn't bother.

One of the things we looked forward to was going to Central Park , on Saturday afternoon, when Wigan played at home.

We would then wait for JIM SULLIVAN who always had a pocket full of toffees which he used to dish out to us.

After that we would wait for what they called three quarter time, when the gates would be opened , and we could get on the ground for free, as we didn't have any money.

Born 1923 - Wigan .


All the best Quigs !
Pete Barker

(thank your Old Dad for us all Pete, Good on you Harry - Quigs)
