With the fizz just about settled on the bubbly following the final home game of last season when the Latics lifted the League One title, the boys are back in training gearing up for the challenges of the Championship.

Just over six weeks since that memorable day in May the players have been off on their trip to Vegas, their family holidays and now returned for the grind that is preseason training.

With the pitches up at the new training facility in Euxton not quite ready yet it was business as usual at Christopher Park, the playing staff were joined by new permanent signings Stephen Warnock and Alex Gilbey, plus returning loanees Andrew Taylor, Billy Mckay, Danny Whitehead, Dan Lavercombe and Emyr Huws.

Speaking about the start of preseason Latics boss Gary Caldwell told the Latics Official website”The real hard work starts now

”It’s going to be an intense six weeks or so until the season kicks off but come August 6th, we’ll be ready.”
