'If It's Football, It's Vital'

The Wigan Times

35 year old goalkeeper John Filan might return home to Australia to see out his career once his contract at Wigan finishes at the end of next season. He has kept five clean sheets in six games after returning to fitness from a hernia op. He said 'I'm delighted to be back playing at this level, but eventually I will return home because I want to see the game develop in Australia.'

Wigan Athletic's JJB Stadium is set for a bumper crowd on Saturday as fans flock to see The Latics take on Arsenal. 24 900 tickets have been sold with the Gooner fans bringing a full allocation of 5,000.

Our chief exec is delighted at the stadiums first sell out: 'It is absolutely tremendous to see that the people of Wigan are all taking a positive interest in their football club. Considering what our crowds were when the stadium opened six years ago it's quite an achievement that this is the first time we've sold out at the JJB for a football match especially when you take into consideration that it is an early lunchtime kick-off.'

Chairman Dave Whelan says Wigan can build on their amazing start to the season and get European qualification. He said 'I'm immensely proud to see Wigan second in The Premiership and, two or three years down the line, we have to look towards European competition.' Adding 'We want to take a leaf out of Bolton's book but survival is still everything for us this season.'

Paul Jewell has said he isn't interested in any offers for the England job and that he intends to stick with club management.

Jewell has said there is more to come from Bullard and says he will shine in his new role on the wing.
