Who's Who of Wigan Athletic
The Football League Years 1978-2004

Dean P. Hayes

Who’s Who Wigan Athletic looks at the varied experiences of the Latics through the club’s lifeblood – the players. Some 283 Wigan players have taken to the field in league matches since the club’s admission to the Football League in 1978: some great, some good, and some others. Yet they all have one thing in common – they have all pulled on a Latics shirt to represent this most friendly of clubs.

Through readable biographies and career statistics, Dean Hayes looks at the contribution that players and managers have made to the fortunes of Wigan Athletic in recent years. Illustrated throughout with high quality photographs, both portraits and action shots, the book gives a fascinating insight into the recent history of the Latics. The career details of all those who have played for Wigan in the Football League are featured for the first time, from the household names to the not-so-famous who in some instances played only a single game in a Wigan shirt.

This comprehensive volume is a valuable addition to the bookshelves of all fans of the Latics and is sure to appeal to anyone with an interest in this proud club.
