If you’re heading to the match tomorrow, there’s a packed edition of the matchday programme waiting for you to pick up.
Inside this weekend’s edition you’ll find an exclusive interview with Adrian Lopez, who talks about playing the waiting game at Latics, how he feels recent performances have gone and how the nickname ‘Piscu’ came to stick.
We also chat with Ben Watson on his road to recovery, talking about when he reckons he’ll be back in action and how his son almost set his rehabilitation back a month or two!
Latics v Mossley in the Northern Premier League is the focus of our attention in The Bigger Picture, with profiles on the game back in 1976, goalkeeper John Brown and John Wilkie also featuring.
Paul Rowley takes us back to 2001 and the return of Paul Jewell at the helm of the club as Latics aimed to break out of Division Two with the help of Arjan De Zeeuw and co.
Academy players Edu Campabadal and Michael Wilson pass comment on their season so far as we get an update from the Under 21 and Under 18 sections of the club, whilst we pick out the best bits from the last home match against Manchester City.
All the regular features are inside as well with Roberto Martinez, Gary Caldwell and Chief Executive Jonathan Jackson all providing messages before the game, whilst Wigan Evening Post’s Paul Kendrick gives his thoughts on the recent goings-on at the club and Neill Rimmer recalls his past encounters with Saturday’s opponents.
All this and much more is waiting for you this weekend and is available for just £3.00 from programme sellers around the DW Stadium.
