2014-15 in the U21 Premier League Cup

Latics made it through to the round of 32 last season, impressively seeing off Preston North End in the first round, 5-0 at Robin Park Arena.  The second round was equally as impressive, as a young Latics side won 3-1 against an experienced Nottingham Forest at the City Ground.

Unfortunately for Latics a penalty shootout would see them out of the cup for the second season in a row, losing 4-1 in a shootout against Bolton Wanderers, after a 4-4 draw over 120 minutes at the County Ground, Lancashire FA.
