Lam named Wigan boss for 2020

Wigan have named Adrian Lam their head coach for next season.

Lam had originally joined the club on the basis that he would make way for Shaun Edwards at the end of the campaign.

But Edwards’ well-documented U-turn on his contract with the Warriors left a question mark over who would fill the role in the long-term.

And this evening the club has announced that Lam will continue in the post until at least the end of 2020.

Lam said: “I am very honoured and privileged to remain on as Head Coach of the Wigan Warriors for the 2020 Season.

“I have great memories as a player at our great Club and I look forward to creating more in the future as Coach.

“As Coach, I am most looking forward to developing and bringing through the next generation of young Wigan players and help progress the style of play which we have built on for the 2019 season.

“I would personally like to thank our Wigan fans and the Club for your support through the 2019 season.”
