Sky Bet launch odds on Wigan Athletic forward’s new-born son becoming and England international in the future.

  • Sky Bet launch special odds on Wigan Athletic forward Ryan Colclough’s son playing for Latics and England.
  • Latics’ Ryan Colclough netted the perfect hat trick last night with two goals and a new-born baby.
  • Colclough scored twice in Latics 3-0 victory over Doncaster Rovers at the DW Stadium.

Could Ryan Colclough’s new-born baby boy pull on an England international shirt one day?

Latics’ forward Colclough celebrated the perfect hat trick yesterday evening when he scored twice in the Sky Bet League One 3-0 victory over Doncaster Rovers, before rushing off on 60 minutes to witness the birth of his second son, Harley Thomas Colclough.

The big question is, will he follow in his father’s footsteps in the future and become a professional footballer?  Sky Bet have opened special odds for Ryan’s son to play for Latics and England when he’s older.

It’s not unheard of, of course, especially at Latics.  Back in 2006, Latics goalkeeper Chris Kirkland made his England debut in a friendly against Greece, earning his father Eddie close to £10,000 after he and some work colleagues put £100 on a 100/1 bet that Chris would one day pull on an England shirt.

Sky Bet spokesman Sandro Di Michele said: “What a fantastic story for Ryan and his family, and first of all, we’d like to offer them the warmest congratulations from all at Sky Bet.

“We know he’s only a day old, but we think the way he came into the world means young Harley is destined for big things.”

Once again we would like to pass on our huge congratulations to Ryan and his family on the arrival of their beautiful baby boy.

Please gamble responsibly. When the fun stops, stop.
