Keeper set to gain valuable experience at League Two side
Wigan Athletic goalkeeper Lee Nicholls has joined League Two side Northampton Town on a loan spell until the end of October, it was announced today.
The 19 year-old spent the second half of last season on loan at Accrington Stanley, were he made his league debut and a further eight appearances before returning to Latics.
After a promising pre-season spell which has seen the England Under-20 international play 90 minutes against Botev Plovdiv in Austria, he’ll now join the Cobblers for the beginning of their new season and work alongside Goalkeeping Coach Tim Flowers.
Wigan Athletic have a recall option should Nicholls be required to return to the Club before the agreed spell has been completed.
