Young cultured Liverpool-born midfielder who returned to Latics ahead of the 2018-19 season after a successful loan spell at Altrincham.

The young Liverpudlian joined Latics at the age of 14 following his release from Everton.

After a great season for the Under 18s in 2016-17, he was offered professional terms.

He is a ball-playing central midfielder with a cultured left foot, who is very combative and has an eye for a spectacular goal. 

Merrie made his first team debut in a 2-1 Carabao Cup win over Blackpool in August 2017 before featuring in two further cup games in the 2017-18 season.

He moved on loan to Altrincham at the end of the 2017-18 season and helped Alty to win the Northern Premier League title, scoring the goal that secured promotion for Phil Parkinson's side at Grantham.
