A look ahead to the week at Wigan Athletic, the DW Stadium and Wigan Athletic Community Trust, with action for our Development Squad and Under 18s.

  • Latics' Under 18s in action twice against Morecambe and Rochdale, with the Development Squad travelling to Burnley.
  • Joe Gelhardt and Jensen Weir representing England U17s against Czech Republic, Antonee Robinson and Samy Morsy also in action for USA and Egypt.
  • Job application deadline for Ticket Office Team Members.

Despite a break in first team fixtures, there's still plenty going on at Wigan Athletic, the DW Stadium and the award-winning Wigan Athletic Community Trust, including three professional Academy fixtures, plenty of international action, players out on loan, job application deadlines and all of your usual content from our media team.

Let's take a look!

Monday 12 November

The club and Wigan Athletic Community Trust will be attending the North West Football Awards at the Point, Emirates Old Trafford on Monday evening, with representatives and initiatives shortlisted for six separate awards, including:

Development Squad forward Callum Lang is set for Emirates FA Cup action with Oldham Athletic when they travel to face Hampton & Richmond in the first round on Monday evening, kick off 7.45pm.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: The DW Stadium Ticket Office will be closed on Tuesday 13 November from 9.00am to midday for system maintenance.
