Wigan announce financial

Wigan are set to release financial accounts for the year 2004 which will show a six figure profit.The accounts will show a net profit of ?110,000.

Wigan Chairman Maurice Lindsay commenting on the results said,

"We are pleased that we can announce the first significant operating profit since 1998.The club was in a difficult financial position in the late 90's and everyone knows that Central Park was sold as a consequence. We have slowly but surely climbed back to a more acceptable financial operation and a lot of people at the Club have worked hard to get to where we are."

Lindsay continued,

"We now have a firm control over costs and revenue is on the increase as demonstrated by the record 25,000 attendance for a Super League game on Good Friday.Although we are pleased that we have got the club on a sound financial footing the important goal for the Club is to win a trophy as soon as possible. Our excellent coaching team headed by Denis Betts have that firmly in mind and only a cruel injury list has stopped our momentum this year. I am sure however, that playing success is not far away for the Club and it's fans."
