Wigan Athletic’s match at Victoria Park on 25 July called off.
- Hartlepool v Latics pre-season match cancelled.
- Wigan Athletic and Hartlepool agree to match cancellation.
- “We thank Hartlepool for their understanding.” – Paul Cook.
Wigan Athletic’s planned pre-season trip to Hartlepool United on Tuesday 25 July has been cancelled.
With away games at Notts County and Grimsby Town on consecutive Saturdays either side of the proposed date, and Latics now having to travel to face MK Dons for the opening fixture in League One a week later, it is felt that to play another distant away game so close to the start of the season could be counter-productive to preparations.
Latics manager Paul Cook said: “We thank Hartlepool for their understanding on this matter.”
The club apologises for any inconvenience caused.
