The National Football Museum in Manchester is the home of football’s greatest stories and the perfect place to catch up with football’s ‘story so far’.

Throughout the 2013/14 season, the museum is home to Game Changers: 125 Years of The Football League. Celebrating the anniversary of the world’s oldest football league, this new exhibition explores the major personalities and events that have defined the game as we know it.

Each Football League team has sent one special item to the exhibition and this includes the Latics, to show the club’s history and achievements, Wigan Athletic have sent their application to join the Football League 1978.

Entry to the exhibition is free and just a couple of hundred yards from Victoria railway station, if you have a hour or two to spare why not ‘pop’ along, well worth a visit.

Those were the days
