Latics to Newcastle the Connections

Latics to Newcastle the Connections


With Wigan Athletic facing Newcastle this Boxing Day 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.

Dave Beasant, Titus Bramble, Alex Bruce, Paul Dalglish, Tony Dinning, Alan Herron, Keith Gillespie, Alan Kennedy, Gordon Milne, Jimmy Naylor, Michael O`Neill, Georgie Scott, Antoine Sibierski, Charlie Spencer, Roy Tunks, Micky Quinn,

Of the players mentioned above Titus Bramble and Antoine Sibierski are obviously well known to supporters having been playing for both clubs in the past two seasons, but the biggest character must be Micky Quinn

An old fashioned centre forward Quinn started his career with the Latics and he had a wealth of clubs that included Newcastle where he made 115 appearances scoring 59 goals between 1989 - 92, he made his debut for the Latics as a 17 year old and played in 69 games scoring 19 goals.

A story about Quinn doing the rounds at the moment and taken off Virgin Media web site is:

When Mick Quinn joined Wigan Athletic he was rumbled for continuing to sign on the dole. Quinn regarded the money as a signing on fee. Luckily the DSS didnt prosecute, allowing him to pay the money back weekly. Quinn later claimed he needed the money for food - his favourite meal is seconds.

His book `Who Ate All The Pies` is a gem of a read and is tragically funny following the career of this loveable rogue and his antics around the football circuit, his drinking and many misdemeanours, highly recommended.

Micky Quinn, Latics actually paid his wages when they let him go to Stockport!

Latics head over the Pennines this afternoon to face Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.

It is only three weeks since the sides last met, on that occasion we allowed the Blades to come back from three goals down to claim a share of the spoils, hopefully lessons learned that day will help us to see this game out.

Under Nigel Adkins Sheff United haven't had the season that they were hoping for, hovering outside the playoff spots for most of the campaign so far they will be hoping to ma
