Wigan Athletic - Fans To Get Refund

Wigan Athletic - Fans To Get Refund


Wigan Athletic players are set to refund the travelling supporters who went to White Hart Lane and witnessed the 9-1 drubbing at the hands of Spurs.

A press release sent to Vital Wigan from the Latics media manager Ed Jones confirms this:

PLAYERS REFUND FANS

Wigan Athletic players to personally refund Tottenham tickets

The club have announced that the players of Wigan Athletic have decided to personally refund every Latics fan who bought a ticket from the DW Stadium for the match against Tottenham Hotspur yesterday.

Latics had a sizeable following at White Hart Lane and skipper Mario Melchiot, speaking on behalf of all the players, said today: 'We feel that as a group of players we badly let down our supporters yesterday, and this is a gesture we HAVE TO make and pay them back for their tremendous loyalty.

'There is not a lot else to say, just that as a group of professionals we were embarrassed by the way we performed, we feel it was below our standards and this is something we feel we owe to the fans.

'Now we have to draw a line under the game, focus completely on training this week and bounce back on Saturday.

'We are professionals, we will take it on the chin and move on but it`s important that we do not take our supporters for granted.'


The club has confirmed that every supporter who bought a ticket from the DW Stadium for the game yesterday should contact the ticket office, either in person or by phoning 0871 33 66 552, and a full refund will be posted to their home address, hopefully within 14 days.

Refunds must be claimed on or before Friday 4th December 2009.

its nice to know there are some decent spurs fans who can offer sympathy to Wigan fans at this bad time. As for Bolton and City, well, they can go and do something to themselves!

and by 'something' I meant a rude word that is four letters long and begins with the sixth letter of the alphabet. I'm not usually like this but I'm very bitter at the moment.
