Wigan keep Lam for 2021

Wigan Warriors have announced Head Coach Adrian Lam has signed a contract extension for the 2021 season.  

In 2020, Lam guided Wigan to its first League Leaders’ Shield since 2012, was named the  Super League Coach of the Year and led the Club into its 11th Grand Final and an amazing match against St Helens at the culmination of a very difficult season for Rugby League and all sports.

In that stunning Grand Final, Lam became the first person in Super League to have both played for and been the head coach of the same team in Grand Finals.

With 34 Super League wins from 52 games, Lam has a winning percentage of 65% since becoming Wigan boss at the start of 2019.

On signing a new deal, Lam said: “I’m really excited. It’s a massive honour for me to re-sign at this great club.

“It’s been a fantastic year overall. I’ve seen the team grow as a unit and winning the League Leaders’ Shield was a highlight, but we must go one better in 2021.

“The squad has been strengthened each year since my arrival and, with the new players coming in and another year’s experience behind our hardened young players, we’re in a great position to take trophy-winning advantage of that.”

Chairman, Ian Lenagan added: “Adrian has done well in the very difficult circumstances of season 2020.

“To win the Head Coach of the Year Award and the League Leaders’ Shield and to come so close to winning a great Grand Final is a good effort. But he knows we want more, and we think him well capable of that.

“He has a strong desire to take Wigan to a higher level, his ethos fits well with our ambitions and he is clearly enjoying his work and relishing the squad available to him in 2021.”
