Wigan Warriors will officially have a new owner this weekend as from 1st December Ian Lenagan will become the new Owner and Chairman of the club.
The Warriors announced on 25th October that Mr Lenagan would be taking control from this date from Dave Whelan and Maurice Lindsay.
We caught up with Maurice this week as his near 30 years connections with the Club draw to an end. He told us,
"It's a mixed emotional time for me. It's getting close to the 1st December where we technically hand over to Ian and his colleagues It's sad that I will have to say goodbye, particularly to people who I have worked with for a long time but at the same time it's exciting because we all have to retire some time and my time is now. I am really excited that the club is moving forward.
"It is sad for me but I am now looking forward just to be a supporter of the club. I've known Ian for quite some time and Joe Lydon even longer. It has taken time but the handover has happened in a stately way and it is an exciting time for those two now. There were so many things to sort out but on the 1st December it will be a formal transfer."
