Don't get me started on this topic. Had a bag nicked with a brand new Harrington jacket, peanut butter sandwiches and a can of shandy. When i got home my dad went mad and phoned the Casino but only got one of the cleaning ladies :laugh:

Worst thing was on the way home my mates were saying 'no one ever steals anything at Wigan' like we're all soulies together. Yeah right :angry:

Unfortunately , pilfering did occur at WC , which the above replies are only a few of many . It is well known that there were some individuals who - never mind taking your possessions - would have taken your internal organs if they could .

Yes that pretty well sums it up.

I got robbed twice in the early days once in beachcomber and once on the car park.

After a record buying trip to the states in 77, I had done really well in sales, money in every pocket.

I went for a dance and a wad came out of one of my pockets, and one of the other dancers picked it up and give it it to me.

didnt get robbed but almost stabbed it was in the first few weeks arrived in the multi storey carpark with a mate as we entered there was a copper stood outside staring into space looking bored, when we got out of the car in the car park some psyco appeared with a big knife he had me cornered he wasnt going to rob me but the deal was 'youre going to help me kill the copper or ill kill you' my mate was stood a little bit away frozen with terror and all i could do was try to talk him down which i did eventually and it seemed like hours and in reality probibly was, by the time we got out the police was long gone [probibly heard what went on and scarpered]

a year or two later i was nabbed and beaten up and locked up for 2 days by the d.s theres gratitude!

On a similar theme, we once went up to Wigan on a coach from Hull with a few certain rougues that were attending at the time. Halfway through the night I think someone went on a reccy around the town centre and found a gun/sports shop and broke into it. Realising they needed a vehicle to stash their ill gotten gains in, they enlisted our coach driver, who kindly parked the coach next to the shop so they could load up the goods, he was helpful like that ! It was a strange journey home, I remember stopping at the motorway sevices and people breaking out the air rifles and having a bit of a turkey shoot. If I remember rightly they even did the same shop about a month later ! Pete.G

Remember there was a phase of nicking badges. had one on my zip up jumper which I wore to / from WC. Anyway one of our lads had all his cut off his bag one night. Noticed this at the station going home- we all started laughing at him, and he said "Hang on Where's yours gone?". looked down on my jumper and someone had cut that off too!

Sure they are all up on ebay now for £100 :thumbsup:

Yes in 1979 a pair of yellow dungarees, black sweat shirt with 'Jo' on front and 'Wigan Casino' on back and Speedo bag.

Had to travel back to Telford on the train without a change of clothes.

Smelly or what!
