  • Wish FM's Team of the Week for Wigan Athletic v Burton Albion.
  • Shevington Sky FC U7s get exclusive access at the DW Stadium.

Shevington Sky FC U7s were the Wish FM Team of the Week for Latics' 0-0 draw against Burton Albion on Saturday 15 October, with the gallery above taking you behind the scenes with the players at the DW Stadium.

Coached by Martin Harrison and David Harris, the team are still in their first season together but in a non-competitive environment have progressed immensely in a short period of time.

Speaking to the official Wigan Athletic programme ahead of the match, Martin said:

"We can't believe how the youngsters have gone ferom not being able to kick a ball to being a great little team that work together, pass the ball and shout instructions to each other to help.

"They're all good friends and win, lose or draw they really enjoy their football - whether it's training or a match they're only disappointed when it ends, they'd play all week if they could.

"There were a few screams and cheers when they heard they would be coming to the game as Team of the Week - from the parents as well as the children.

"We are at our full quota of players for this age group at the moment, but we're looking to start a second team if we get the numbers, so anybody who knows of any children aged seven and under who may be interested in joining then please don't hesitate to email me on"
