What are they doing now?

What are they doing now?

With the new season upon us Vital Wigan thought they would investigate what some of our past players are up to with their current clubs

Jimmy Bullard was sold to Fulham at the end of the 2005/06 season

Unfortunately Jimmy suffered a serious knee injury in September last year and missed the rest of the season

Bullard is now back in training and raring to get his career back on track and he is expected to be back in first team action at Fulham by October at the latest, best wishes Jimmy

Arry DeZeeuw was released by the Latics at the end of last season and but got himself fixed up with a contract at Coventry City where he was named club captain.

Arry suffered a knee injury in training and is expected to be out of action till September.

Life in the Championship might be a bit easier on Arry`s old bones and he could enjoy his swansong with the Sky Blues

Matt Jackson like DeZeeuw was released at the end of last season and signed for Watford

Jacko is a model pro and will always give his best where ever he goes, with Jackson in their defence Watford should enjoy a good season as they adapt to life back in the Championship

Andy Liddell left Latics for Sheffield United in 2004 and then moved on to Oldham Athletic, where last season he helped the 'other` Latics get into the League one play-offs, unfortunately they were knocked out in the semi-final by Blackpool

Mike Flynn recently signed for Blackpool from Gillingham (where he was club captain)

Flynny`s infectious character will help Blackpool in their quest to survive in the Championship

David Graham moved onto Gillingham from Sheffield Wednesday where he suffered a nightmare time.

Graham never quite lived up to his potential, lets hope a change of clubs and divisions helps get his career back on track

Gary Teale is back in the Premiership with Derby County having signed for them in January

Lets hope that Tealey has a torrid time against the Latics but best wishes go to him for the rest of the season

Derek Stillie is trying his hand down south once more, this time with Gillingham

The former Latics keeper signed for the Gills from Scottish club Dundee United

Roberto Martinez now manages Swansea City in league one and is assisted by former Latics man Graeme Jones

Together they are preparing the Swansea team for a crack at promotion this season.

Martinez has made several close season signing including the fascinatingly named Angel Rangel

Nigel Adkins took over the reigns at Scunthorpe United last season and they ended up Champions of League one

Though he has lost his main striker Billy Sharp, Adkins still believes that the Irons can avoid relegation, best wishes Nige
