Former Wire forward released from hospital after battling pneumonia and COVID-19


WARRINGTON Wolves are delighted former player Alastair Brindle is out of hospital in time for his 81st birthday tomorrow, after batting pneumonia and COVID-19.

Brindle, who played for the Wire from 1957-1969 has not been in the best of health for some time and was admitted into hospital in February. His Granddaughter, Jemma Louise Brindle, has informed the club that Alastair left hospital on Friday 24 April after a six-week battle with pnuemonia and coronavirus.
“It has been touch and go within the last few weeks but as a family we couldn’t be prouder of how he has overcome this illness,” said Jemma.
“We thought we’d share our good news story with all of you at Warrington Wolves as Grandad thinks of you all very fondly.”
Warrington-born Alastair, who was inducted into the Warrington Hall of Fame in 2015, made 281 appearances for the Wire and holds Heritage Number 586. He has been a regular spectator to matches at Wilderspool and The Halliwell Jones Stadium since his retirement, following the team he supported from being a young child.
Everyone at the club is delighted to hear such wonderful news in these trying times and look forward to seeing Alastair back at The Halliwell Jones Stadium.
