Wingham Tigers Rugby League Club will announce two all time greatest sides as part of its 100 years celebration in 2021.

The club will hold a celebratory weekend between Friday May 14 and Sunday May 16 and will name the sides featuring players from 1921 to 1971 and 1972 to the present day.

The sides will be named after a home game at Wingham Sporting Complex on the Saturday.

All former and current players, committee members, sponsors and supporters are urged to take part in the celebrations.

Club treasurer Craig Martin hoped COVID-19 restrictions will be lifted before the event as "this could be a weekend the likes of the Wingham community hasn't seen."

The club plans to hold a function on the first night at Wingham Services Club and a breakfast will be held at the ground on the final day. The club plans to take photos to use in the updated club rooms. Guests will also have the opportunity to check out the upgrades to the sporting complex.

The COVID-19 pandemic forced the cancellation of the 2020 Group Three Rugby League season so the celebratory weekend will be a great way for Tigers supporters and players to catch up and finally enjoy some footy.

The club will provide more details on the event in the coming months.

Wingham Football Club switched from rugby union to rugby league in 1921 and adopted the Tigers name in the late 1940s.
