Latics to Fulham the Connections


With Wigan Athletic facing Fulham this evening Vital Latics thought it might be an idea to take a quick look at some of the players that have represented both clubs down the years, with the clubs being 212 miles apart there isn`t a big list but there are some crackers on there:

Dave Beasant, Jimmy Bullard, Michael Brown, Bobby Campbell, Duncan Colquhoun, Mark Grew, Geoff Horsfield and Dai Jones

Jimmy Bullard and Michael Brown could actually end up facing each other tonight as they are the only players in the list that is still at either club.

Bullard played 145 times for the Latics following his move from Peterborough in 2003 and scored 10 goals helping the clubs meteoric rise through the divisions, he moved onto Fulham in June 2006 for a bargain 2.5 million, there was a clause in his contract allowing him to move for that amount.

Jimmy`s Fulham career has been blighted by a serious knee injury that limited him to just 24 appearances for the West London club but he has now made a full recovery and even forced his way into the England squad for the game in Croatia.

Michael Brown moved to the JJB in August 2007 with Latics paying Fulham a reputed 2.5 million for their skipper. Brown had joined Fulham in January 2006 from Spurs for a similar fee and his 18 months spent at Craven Cottage were a relatively successful one making 44 appearances for the Londoners.

The hard tackling midfield man enjoyed a good run in the Latics side during his first season and he made the central midfield spot his own, to date Brownie has made 34 appearances for the Latics
