The New Firm Battle Wigan Robin Park v Wigan Athletic XI
Celtic v Rangers
City v United
Everton v Liverpool
AC v Inter
Nah, they ain't seen anything like this because this Saturday 31 July Wigan Athletic make the journey to the Robin Park Arena for a 3PM kick off. Coaches will be leaving the front of the DW Stadium every ten minutes for the long trawl (copywrite Peter Aspinall WEP - whatever happened to him?) to the Stadio de Robin Park.
It will be red and white stripes versus blue and white stripes. Young guns from the side of the Duggie doing battle for the right to be crowned Wigan's Top Dog(ger)!
Families will be split. WN5 will come to a halt, the bingo halls will empty as The Robins and Latics do battle over 90+ minutes.
After a testing game against Evo-Stik Premier Division side FC United of Manchester on Tuesday this will be another tough game for the Robins. With Latics' stars of the future featuring it should be a cracking game on the excellent Arena surface.
Admission is £4 (£2 concessions), extra pies have been ordered and a souvenir programme is available for £2.
The bar will be open prior to kick off and at half time while hot and cold refreshments will be available from Robin's Nest throughout.
PLEASE NOTE KICK OFF IS 3PM and not 2PM as previously advertised
