Wigan Athletic - Scotland`s Dream Comes True

Wigan Athletic - Scotland`s Dream Comes True


Wigan Athletic new boy Jason Scotland says that it is a dream come true to be a Premier League player at last and though it has been a long and at times hard journey he is thrilled to be achieving what as a young lad back home in Trinidad he fantasised about.

Scotland points to Dwight Yorke as his inspiration and he says that he realises just how fortunate he is, speaking to the Wigan Evening Post Scotland said:'It's been a long road for me but I have finally worked my way up'

'I remember sitting at home watching Dwight Yorke play for Manchester United and, before that, Aston Villa.

'As a young player I always had ambitions to play abroad, but not many players achieve that dream.

'Kenwyne Jones, Stern John and Shaka Hislop have also played at the highest level, and I am looking forward to being one of the fortunate ones to do that as well.'


The 30 year old forward now wants to be a role model for the kids back 'home` and show them that through hard work and dedication you can achieve your dream and get to the very top, he continued: 'I would like to think I am an inspiration for young players in the national team to try to follow.

'I didn't start at the top - I started at the bottom - and I worked my way up through sheer hard work.

'I hope people can look at that as the right way to do it, and think that if they too work hard it could happen to them one day as well.'


Jason Scotland`s hearing for his work permit takes place today (Wednesday) and it is thought to be just a formality, so fingers crossed that all goes smoothly and the former Swansea City and St. Johnstone man can get his Latics career going.

Good vibes from J-Sco, I like the positivity of the squad in the media. No wishy-washy answers to anything!
