Wigan Athletic
In amongst a busy fixture period, we hear from Gavin Massey, Nathan Byrne and Lee Evans, Jason Roberts joins us on the phone and we find out just why Wigan Athletic Community Trust has such an impact across our local area.
Show Notes

It's all hands to the pump at Latics right now with the second of the first team's three games in seven days coming up on Saturday away to Reading, so we're catching up with three players in the thick of all of the action, as well as a former player from Latics, Reading and next Tuesday's opposition Blackburn Rovers.

Plus, we hear from Latics supporters Darren and Evan Sephton, with the father and son duo explaining why they are fully behind the club and Wigan Athletic Community Trust being named EFL North West Community Club of the Year.

Gavin Massey & Nathan Byrne

Latics' right-siders join Guy Clarke in the studio to reflect on Derby County and look ahead to Reading and Blackburn Rovers, plus the duo take part in a quick 'higher or lower' quiz.

Lee Evans

We recap this week's trip to Derby County with the Wales international and look ahead to Saturday's visit to the Madejski Stadium.

Jason Roberts

Former Latics, Reading and Blackburn Rovers striker talks about his time with all three clubs ahead of our upcoming clashes with the Royals and Rovers.

Darren and Evan Sephton

Evan (who has dyspraxia) has been attending the Community Trust’s Every Player Counts disability sports sessions at Wigan Youth Zone for two years.

At first very shy, Evan developed his skills with the support of the Trust’s coaches and improved his personal skills too, making new friends, growing in confidence and bettering his self-esteem.

His involvement in sessions sees him represent Latics’ disability football team in the Greater Manchester Ability Counts Football League.

Every Player Counts is a programme aimed at getting more people with disabilities involved in football and sport, with coaches from the Trust working with over 600 people across the Wigan Borough since the project launched in 2016.
