Town announce Wigan Athletic friendly

4 years ago By Mark Hayes

Ashton Town are proud to announce that John Doolan will bring his young Latic's side to The Hardwick Group Stadium on Tuesday 16th July 745pm ko

Following on from last seasons extremely successful friendly, Town Chairman Mark Hayes is delighted to welcome Wigan Athletic again to kick start the new season.

Mark added 'This is an extremely important fixture for me this year as with the senior Latic's side away in the USA it gives fans a great opportunity to watch a Wigan Athletic side at our ground for just a few quid.

I am also extremely hopeful that the FA Cup will also be here that evening giving fans another opportunity to have their picture taken with the worlds greatest domestic cup competition trophy. I will never bore of seeing it so I really hope the fans turn up in their numbers, not only to see the cup again, but to witness what great talent Latic's have coming through the ranks.'

Entry will be just £5 adults and £2 Under 16's and OAP's, and it will be pay on the gate, with no advance tickets available.

The night will also see the launch of Town's 2013/14 new kit, again kindly sponsored by The Hardwick Group. This will be supported by Duncan Brown and his models from Modelling Network. Duncan and his company, based in Cardiff, provides models for all types of events and all over the UK, from Boxing/UFC ring girls to Music video's and fashion shows plus many many, more.
