Wigan Athletic have unveiled their new away kit and it brings back a bit of nostalgia for those old enough (like me) to remember the famous Holland side of 1978.
Latics Dutch players Mario Melchiot and Daniel De Ridder have both 'modelled` the new kit and commented on how it makes them feel proud with the references to the famous old team of the past, Melchiot said: 'It's a nice design and obviously players like Daniel (de Ridder) and myself will appreciate the reference it also holds to such a great team.
"The new manager we have certainly values the importance of keeping possession and working our way around teams so hopefully it'll have a positive influence on us.'
His compatriot and team mate De Ridder added: 'I can't wait to get going this season and I'm looking forward to wearing the kit. It's a great design and if it can inspire me to play like those great Dutch sides then I'm sure we'll have some happy memories in it.'
Latics commercial manager certainly had his marketing hat on when he said: 'It was an unenviable task to follow the new home kit but Vandanel have delivered the Club another quality kit. I am sure it will be a favourite with the fans and will certainly brighten up the new Club Shop!'
If you want to get a sneak preview in the flesh so to speak then pop along to Deepdale tonight for the Preston North End v Wigan Athletic friendly the Latics will be wearing the new away kit.
Kick-off 7:45 and its £10 adults, £5 kids, pay on the door or there are some tickets at the DW if you want to pre-pay.
