  • Tim Chow and Richard O’Donnell also feature in ‘One to Eleven’ and ‘The Name Game’ respectively.
Wigan Athletic’s official matchday programme is back on sale on Saturday as Latics welcome Fleetwood Town to the DW Stadium.

Packed with exclusive content throughout, this week’s programme sees BBC’s Wigan Athletic reporter Paul Rowley looks back on our non-league rivalry with Fleetwood Town and also assesses an image from our 1971 fixture at Springfield Park in the ‘Latics Observatory’.

More historical content comes in the form of ‘We’ve Got it Covered’ as we feature programme covers dating back over 60 years.

Gary Caldwell and Craig Morgan talk about their former teammate, Fleetwood manager Graham Alexander, whilst Jonathan Jackson gives an insight into a busy three weeks since our last home fixture with Crewe Alexandra, in the ‘Diary from the Boardroom’.

David Perkins describes Latics as “the best club he has played for” as he discusses his route from non-league with Morecambe to Wigan Athletic via Rochdale, Colchester United, Chesterfield, Barnsley and Blackpool.

Tim Chow names his Latics XI from his time with the club whilst Richard O’Donnell gives an insight into his life in ‘The Name Game’.

All of this and more is available from a programme seller outside the DW Stadium for just £3 or online by [clicking here].
