Wigan centre Oliver Gildart surprised the Club’s long-term member of staff Mary Sharkey for International Women’s Day.

Ahead of Wigan’s Betfred Super League Round six tie vs Hull KR at the DW Stadium, which was also International Women’s Day, the centre decided to surprise one of the most important members of staff at the Club.

As way of thanking her for her great and continued service, SJ Specialist Cars provided Wigan’s number four with a worthy set of wheels to pick up Mrs Sharkey on International Women’s Day.
