WIDNES VIKINGS CHESHIRES MOST FAMOUS RUGBY LEAGUE CLUB

He was magnificent with us, though his last season was horrible to watch. He was on a big wage and they seemed to make him play no matter how injured he was, it was a bit ridiculous at times. He is possibly my favourite player from that era, either him or big Jimmy Pick. McKenzie made one pass that I remember even now, running left to right he twisted all the way round left to right and put a man through a gap on his right. It was an incredible pass.

that was in the first half of the season iirc, yet they talk as if promotion was a certainty. i don't think town were top until january.
keith macklin was superb as well. alhough stuart cocker isn't an compatriot of mulligan's!
what a team though. and when they got promoted, finished 9th out of 16 at the first go.

Indeed, and what a beautiful voice that man had.

"It is impossible not to feel a twinge of sympathy for Workington Town, the fall guys this season for the Super League's determination to retain it's European dimesion, in the shape of Paris. While the French have had every assistance to survive, the importance of having a flagship in a heartland area like West Cumbria has been conveniently forgotten." - Dave hadfield - Independent 25th Augsut 1996.

Richard gets the credit for that Keith not me .
If you take a look at some of the old clips on that site there are some real gems of Workington in its industrial heyday.

94/95 would be my guess
He balanced the hot areas with the cold areas. the dry areas with the wet areas.
And, in creating Yorkshire, he created the most glorious place on earth - full of majestic beauty and sporting giants.........and for balance he created....... Lancashire.

93/94. Town won the 2nd division title by coming top, and beat London Crusaders in the Divisional Premiership final at Old Trafford. Martin Oglanby (now the club's joint head coach) won the division's player of the year.

Yeah and that was after we were bottom at christmas with only 6 points. We then beat Halifax in early January and went on to win 10 of our final 14 league games.

6? drew 4-4 with cas before xmas in the game the ref confused jimmy pickering with lee crooks and didn't play advantage when he was through to score.
Posted 01 August 2010 - 08:41 AM
I remember that, it was ridiculous. How he confused jimmy for a cas player even though he was charging towards the line i`ll never know. We had a great run that season, we nilled and battered 3 or 4 teams at home and it all began after we mullered Fax live on sky.
Posted 01 August 2010 - 09:28 AM
Yes you're right, we had 5 points at Xmas not 6 - we'd beaten Doncaster and Hull and drew with Cas.
