Former Saints hooker Micky Higham has been granted a three-month testimonial in recognition of his long and illustrious career, good character and service to the community both within and around Rugby League.

And one of the popular player’s fund-raising events will be a queston and answer fans’ forum at Langtree Park on October 29.

Billinge-born Micky started his professional Rugby League career at Leigh and moved to Saints in November 2000, where he made 116 appearances and scored 35 tries as well as being a Grand Final winner at the expense of the Bradford Bulls in 2002.

He joined Wigan Warriors in October 2005 via Bradford Bulls in a deal involving the late Terry Newton.

Micky signed for Warrington for the 2009 season and won Challenge Cup medals in 2009, 2010 and 2012.

The testimonial will be launched at a Free Family Day at Monks Club Woolston on Saturday September 13.

A special testimonial brochure is also being produced as well as his very own iPhone App game with proceeds from all fun-raising events going to 33-year-old Micky’s chosen charity, Steps, which supports children and adults affected by a lower limb condition such as clubfoot or a hip condition.
