Higham Hits One Hundred
Micky Higham’s appearance in last night’s game against Catalan was his 100th for Warrington.
The hooker joined the Wolves from neighbours Wigan back in 2009. Since making his debut Micky has crossed for 21 tries in his 100 appearances in primrose and blue.
Last season he played in 28 games including the Grand Final at Old Trafford where his pass put Richie Myler through the gap for an early score versus Leeds.
To mark reaching this milestone the club welcomed past player Kevin Ashcroft down to training to present Micky with his commemorative playing shirt.
100th Club Appearance
Warrington Wolves v Catalan Dragons
Kevin signed from Leigh back in 1972 playing just three seasons for the club making 124 appearances, crossing for 20 tries and kicking 23 goals.
Although he played just three seasons, they were three of the most successful in the club’s history. In 1972/3 Warrington won the League Leaders rose bowl, the final season of one division before reverting to two divisions.
The following season four trophies were won, the Challenge Cup, Club Merit, John Player and Captain Morgan. Kevin was captain in the latter two finals, winning the man of the match award in the John Player final. In 1974/5 Warrington lost in the finals of the Challenge Cup and the Floodlight Trophy.
Kevin scored Warrington’s first one point drop goal.
Upcoming Milestone: Chris Riley is just one appearance away from his 150th for Warrington
