Your first Wigan game?

1986 Wigan v Australia. Only went because a football match was cancelled I was playing in. Hooked straight away.

 What is your most memorable moment being a Wigan fan?

27-0 v saints in Challenge Cup Final. To beat them and nil them was special.

Who is your favourite all-time Wigan player?

Ged Byrne. The original ‘man of the people’ . Offiah etc had sponsored cars and he had a white van with ladders on as a window cleaner. He described himself as a ‘Window Technician’!

Who is your favourite Wigan player?

Bateman. He is not big, he is not fast and should be rubbish. Instead his desire and no nonsense attitude makes him one of the best.

Name one player that you would love to see play for Wigan – past or present

‘Slammin’ Sam Backo the big Aussie prop. What a moustache!

What is your favourite away ground and why?

Odsal. Play-off game. Enough said.

John Bateman
