Wigan - End of an Era

Wigan - End of an Era

The news this week that David Lowe has left the club to joind Paul Jewell at Derby will be greeted with a great deal of sadness among the Latics faithful.

David Lowe along with Alex Cribley and Kevin Langley was the last remaining link to the first golden age of league football at Latics under the tenure of Harry McNally.

David signed for the Latics in 1983 .

He was a prolific striker in his first spell and made this Latics fan very happy on scoring a goal in the 3- 1 Freight Rover final victory against Brentford in 1985.

He left the club in 1987 to sign for Ipswich after scoring 40 goals in 179 appearences.

After a career that took in several other clubs he re-signed for us in 1996 and during his second spell broke Peter Houghton's goal socring record, a record he would hold until it was broken by Andy Liddell.

David left the club again in 1999 and after retiring as a player in 2000 he worked for three years for the PFA and then joined Latics as part of the youth team set up.

David is a very approoachable affable gentleman who loves the game and is always willing to talk to the fans about it.

Along with Peter Houghton he remains my all time favourite player and I am sure all Latics fans wish him well on his new venture

For the record he played 265 games for the Latics and scored 66 goals for the Latics.
