Primary School teacher Nik Farrell was all set to travel home to England for tomorrow's FA Cup final against Manchester City but, an unfortunate sporting accident cost him that chance and by his own admission a considerable amount of money.
Not wanting to miss out on the excitement, Nik had the idea of taking Wigan to Beijing, China where he works at Bobeeboom Internation Kindergarten.
This week has all been about Wigan Athletic at the school and Nik has acquired a fan base from his class of three-year-olds who created posters to support Latics.
The children are set to watch their first ever football match this weekend and what better way to do so than with Latics' first ever FA Cup final.
