19 January 2018

Latics and Plymouth to honour Cyrille Regis this weekend.

  • Minute's applause to honour Cyrille Regis.
  • Wigan Athletic and Plymouth Argyle to remember Cyrille Regis' achievements.
  • Cyrille's brother Dave will be a guest of Plymouth's at Home Park.

Wigan Athletic and Plymouth Argyle will hold a minute's applause to mark the life and achievements, both on and off the pitch, of England international forward Cyrille Regis following his sad passing.

Regis played over 600 career matches for West Bromwich Albion, Coventry City, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Aston Villa, Wycombe Wanderers and Chester, as well as representing his country on the international stage.

In a statement earlier today, the EFL said: 

"The EFL understands the strength of feeling throughout football for the impact Cyrille Regis made as a player and as a campaigner for black players in the game. The EFL would like to reiterate the respect and gratitude that has been shown by the football family and the wider sporting world for the contribution he has made."
