Call from Shaun O'Loughlin tonight, my dad had one later. Definitely genuine.
Sorry to go off topic, but you are "Great grandad Harry Ball" and your dad got a call from the club????

How old is your dad? :D
My dad is 91 and still a season ticket holder. I am 64 and still a shareholder and a season ticket holder.
My user name might be great grandad harry ball but that is because my great grandad was Harry (Henry) Ball, born 1873 -Wigan heritage number 61 who played in the first ever game at Central Park, made 138 first team appearances (7 tries) and later became a director of the club. He died in 1970. Trust that is enough of an explanation!

Thanks for the explanation - I'm glad I asked - very interesting! Best wishes to your dad.

My phone call was from Dom Manfredi with John Bateman geeing him on in the background 😂

The call came through as Wigan Warriors, so knowing it was from the club, I just answered with “hiya”.

I knew it was him straight away cos he replied, “Josie, one of your chickens has got out!” When I said I’d just come in from seeing to them, he told Batty & I could him hearing laughing.

Dom said when he saw my name on the list he pulled it out for making the call just so he could wind me up, or try to 😂 He then asked how did I know it was him, “cos there’s only you who talks to me about chickens.” I replied!

Anyway after the initial asking me how I was etc, it was as everyone else’s message, just to thank me for forfeiting my 2020 season ticket 😊

I have had calls from Matty Peet and John Winder (as I buy 2 tickets, I think, though the more the merrier), and both of them confirmed that Manfredi was fit and well and ready to shine next year (which was of course the only thing on my mind). If he had rung me, I could have asked him in person, but am nowhere near Josie’s VIP level. Was really interested to hear how they think socially distanced crowds could work. Mid May isn’t that far away now... Let’s get those season tickets out there and snapped up!

Dom was more interested in asking about me & my animals, we chat regularly online that’s how I knew he was fit & well & doing well, so never thought to mention it 😳
Also wishing me good luck for Thursday & hope my operation goes well, he will ring again next week see how I am 😊

Just had my call from club was Jake bibby. Spent a good few minutes talking about season and raring to go. Feels same as me with squad we can go extra step and win it this year. First time spoken to him but sounds a nice bloke.

Anyone else who donated their season ticket money still waiting for contact from the club or is it just me?
Not heard anything at all via phone, email, or post. Should I be worried?
