Join us for a night of fun, celebrating Wigan Athletic being elected to the football league back on the 2nd June 1978.
The night will mainly focus on the 1978 squad and their memories of the day we were elected, but as it has been a roller coaster 40 years since we have many players and officials coming to talk about the many achievements Latics have made in that time.

We also have Barry Knowles, Graham Barrow, Neill Rimmer, Bryan Griffiths. From more recent times we have record DW Stadium goal scorer Nathan Ellington and FA Cup lifting Captain Emmerson Boyce.
Club Officials don’t often get to tell their side of things, but we will have Alan Muir (Director when we were elected in the room, with Jonathan Jackson, Ray Mathias, Bill Kenyon, Brenda Spencer and more. The difference Alan and Bill will have encountered to Jonathan Jackson is vast and will really put things in perspective.
The Cups will be there, it is amazing what our Club has won over the years. The FA up, AWS, Freight Rover, Lancashire Cup, 3rd Division, 2nd Division and League 1 Champions plus the non-league stuff.
