TOGETHER AND KICK IT OUT



Today marks the official launch of our new equality and diversity programme TOGETHER a programme to highlight all the work undertaken by Wigan Athletic Football Club, its registered charity Wigan Athletic Community Trust and the DW Stadium in promoting equality and diversity across the organisation.

The fixture is also the designated Kick it Out game for the 2015-16 season and will see the introduction of a new reporting line and Together branding around the DW Stadium.

The new reporting text line, 80800, should be used by supporters to report any incident of anti-social behaviour or discrimination.



As part of the day, first-team players will be warming up in Together and Kick it Out t-shirts and the Community Trust are organising activities in the Family Fun Zone before kick-off.

MATCH DAY PROGRAMME



Donervon Daniels is the feature interview for Saturday’s official matchday programme as Southend United visit the DW Stadium.

We find out more about how the former West Bromwich Albion youngster has enjoyed his development in Wigan and where he feels his game has improved most.

Daniels’ good friend Yanic Wildschut takes part in ‘One to Eleven’ and selects a side from players he has played with throughout his career to date.

Elsewhere in the programme, Gary Caldwell, Craig Morgan and Jonathan Jackson provide their regular contributions whilst we also go in depth on our opponents Southend United and profile their season to date, their players and where the players from both squads have crossed paths previously in their careers.

You can find out all about the club’s academy and development squad as they both enter crucial stages of the season whilst we also profile our new scholars for next season.

You can read all of this and more by purchasing an official matchday programme for just £3 outside the DW Stadium or online by clicking here.
