Wild announces a last minute addition to the team before the North West derby between Widnes Wild and Blackburn Eagles.

Mick Caunce, Wild’s GM, put the transfer request in and managed to get it sorted before the game today. Chad Briggs is a well known Northern league defensive player who has spent most of his career at Blackburn.

Chad knows most of the team and played alongside Mark Gillingham, Bobby Caunce, Dan Etherington and a few others at Blackburn Juniors before playing a few seasons at Telford

“We invited Chad along to our training over the summer and he seemed to be enjoying it but had decided to have some time out from the game after his last season with the Hawks”

“Following our training on Thursday we managed to agree terms with a player who we have been after from when we started the formation of the Wild”

“When he turned up again this week we decided he was too good not to be playing and agreed terms on the night.”

Icing in no.93 against Eagles, Chads chosen number is 6 and his shirts are available for “Own & Loan” now!
