Latics defender Craig Morgan has put pen to paper on a new 2 year deal at the club.

Morgan skippered the Latics to the League 1 title last season but has found himself in and out of the starting line-up this time round making just 14 appearances compared with 38 last term, in fairness to the centre back he has suffered from a hamstring and also a toe injury that has blighted his season.

Speaking to Latics Official about his new deal Morgan said – ”I’m really happy to be committing myself

”The chairman made it very clear he wanted me to stay and I think it’s right I should repay his faith. I’ve enjoyed my time here, and although this season has been a tough one, the club is built on solid foundations and I want to be a part of that moving forwards.

”If my experience can help in that regard, then that’s a good thing for everyone.”

Clearly looking ahead to nexty season Latcis chairman David Sharpe commented – ”Craig is a top professional whose experience was a vital part of last year’s success and who will now be part of the backbone of the side for the next two seasons.

”We are delighted he has committed himself to us because every club needs players like Craig.”
