PRE-SEASON FRIENDLY – TOMMY LEE TESTIMONIAL
CHESTERFIELD V WIGAN ATHLETIC
WEDNESDAY 25 JULY 2018
Latics have returned from La Cala and will step up their pre-season preparations with a trip to Chesterfield on Wednesday night (kick-off 7pm).
Paul Cook will take a side to face his former club as the Spireites celebrate the career of their former goalkeeper Tommy Lee, with a special testimonial to mark his spell with the club after he was forced to retire due to injury.
Lee played over 350 games for the Derbyshire club in a ten-year spell and Cook told the new Wigan Athletic podcast ‘Latics Listen’ what a true great his former stopper has been for Chesterfield FC.
“Tommy is outstanding,” Cook said. “He is a fantastic lad and it is really disappointing to see him have to cut short his career.
“He has been an outstanding goalkeeper and as a lad and a character, you won’t get better. He was such a popular member of the dressing room.
“The fact we can go back and help in any way, shape or form, is great for us all.”
Adults - £10
Over 65s - £5
Under 16s - £3
Away fans will be housed in Blocks 1 and 2 of the East Stand and they can purchase tickets at the ticket office in the South Stand (cash only).
Latics face Rangers on Sunday, with over 1,500 fans heading up to Scotland to watch Paul Cook’s side. Tickets remain on sale until 5pm on Wednesday and in person/via phone until midday on Friday.
