This weekend’s official Wigan Athletic matchday programme is packed with exclusive content ranging from an interview with defender Harry Maguire to Gary Caldwell’s first programme notes, Chairman David Sharpe’s personal address to the fans and BBC Radio Manchester’s Wigan Athletic reporter Paul Rowley’s detailed look back at our history in fixtures with Brighton & Hove Albion.
Maguire talks about his future, his spell on loan with Latics, his footballing family and his life so far at Hull City.
Below is a brief snippet of what the 22-year-old had to say in his interview with the Wigan Athletic official matchday programme:
On his time with Wigan Athletic:
“It’s been good here,” Maguire said. “I came in to get some game time and obviously I wanted to help the team do well. I feel like I’ve contributed, I’d have liked a few more points and the team to be in a better position in the league but we’ve been really unlucky in a lot of games and every game I’ve been involved in, I feel has been a really tight encounter.
“It’s been enjoyable, I feel like I’ve developed as a player and I’m thankful for the opportunity.”
The highlights of his loan spell:
“My highlights are my goal at Blackpool which was pleasing and then my first game at Reading too which was a 1-0 win and a result we really needed,” he continued.
“I’ve played every game since I’ve been here and that’s what I wanted, in an ideal world, we’d have won every game but hopefully in the remaining games we can pick up a few wins and get some more points on the board.”
On centre back partner Jason Pearce:
“Jason’s a really good player and someone that has played at a really good level throughout his career,” Maguire added.
“He’s done well since he has come in and we feel like we are beginning to understand each other’s games more as each match passes – he’s a brave player and is good to play with because you know he’s always there to support you.”
