I have been chatting to an elderly Lady tonight, who was originally from Hindley. when I was telling her about Wigan Rejects she was very interested. She is on Holiday from this week, but she has taken the name and I think she may be applying for membership when she returns. I have told her to mention Weatherwax if she applies, so that we know she is genuine.
Hope this is OK Admin. Laughing
