Victor Moses joins the battle

Just when you thought that former Wigan Athletic player’s generosity for our cause couldn’t get any better, up steps Victor Moses to donate too. If he wasn’t a legend before, he certainly is now.

Former Wigan Athletic winger Victor Moses has made a substantial donation to help save his former club through the Wigan Athletic Supporters’ Club official Crowdfunder page.

Moses, who held huge popularity for his star performances during his two years at the DW Stadium between 2010 and 2012, got in touch with the official Supporters’ Club on Tuesday to say he wanted to help in any way he could to save Wigan Athletic and aid the club’s supporters in reaching their target.

Victor wanted to remain anonymous for his donation, however the Supporters’ Club insisted that the Nigerian international should receive recognition for a quite incredible gesture which has taken our fundraising total to over £650,000!

Caroline Molyneux, Chairperson of the official Wigan Athletic Supporters’ Club, said Victor’s donation showed incredible generosity from an exceptional footballer.

“Wow – what can we say?” Caroline said. “When Victor got in touch to say he wanted to help by donating such a substantial amount, I just couldn’t believe what I was hearing – it’s such an incredible gesture.

“Victor wanted to make the donation and remain anonymous but we simply had to make sure he gets the recognition he deserves. Victor’s contribution has taken us past £650,000 and to within £100,000 of our next target of £750,000.

“We are so thankful to Victor for his support. He is an excellent footballer, a true role model and someone we always enjoyed watching at the DW Stadium – he will always be welcome back here, even more so now!”

The Supporters’ Club Crowdfunder page was set up in August as the likelihood of Wigan Athletic finding a new owner looked increasingly unlikely ahead of an initial deadline of 31st August, set by the club’s administrators.

The purpose of the campaign is to ensure Wigan Athletic supporters will have a voice in the future ownership of the club and the more money that is raised, the louder that voice will be.
