As Roberto Martinez’s men prepare for the Club’s historic FA Cup Semi-Final against Millwall on Saturday they were given a special musical send off from a group of Wigan school children.
The students from St John Fisher Catholic High School performed a song they had written called ‘Never Going Down Again’ at the Christopher Park training ground for the players before one of their last training sessions before they head for London in search of Wembley glory.
The song was inspired by the players FA Cup and Premier League heroics this season and was first heard by the Manager at a recent Wigan Athletic Community Trust event, and he was so impressed he was determined that his players would get to hear it before the big match.
“When I first heard the children sing the song I was very impressed and immediately thought that the players should hear it,” said Roberto.
“We were delighted to have them to the training ground, to meet the players and also sing the special song for them.”
The young people had written the song as part of a schools competition which asked pupils to come up with new ways to encourage more young people to come to home games at the DW Stadium.
The event was part of the Latics Enterprise Academy project which uses the model of a professional football club to teach young people about business.
