We were delighted to welcome Wigan Athletic into the Football Aid family in 2005 to host our 'Legends Master Class' at their excellent Academy and they continued to host events there up until 2007. Reserve Team Coach, David Lowe and former Wigan winger, David Lee ran the show in '06, putting fans through the drills, thrills and spills experienced by pro footballers during training sessions, while Lee McCulloch was also onside to stamp his seal of the approval on the event, explaining, "It's great to see others put through their paces for once!". Thanks to the fantastic support of the Wigan Athletic Community Trust we were able to host our 1st ever game at the DW Stadium on Sun 10th May 2015. The game featured WAFC Legends Neill Rimmer and Joe Parkinson and was a huge success and we look forward to hosting more games with the club in the coming years.
