Michael Brown and Ian Kilford are the two Latics legends to sign up for Joseph’s Goal charity match against Arjan de Zeeuw’s Dutch Masters at Ashton Town FC next month.

De Zeeuw, voted Wigan’s greatest-ever player, is flying over a team of ex-Dutch internationals for the big game, which could well double up as a promotion party for Gary Caldwell’s men.

And Brown, who represented Latics in the Premier League, and Kilford, a stalwart of the Springfield Park era, have joined the squad.

Tickets are just £10 for adults and £5 for Under-16s, with Under-6s getting in free, and are available from the DW Stadium ticket office, 0871 6633552 and www.wiganathletic.com/tickets

Already confirmed for the Latics Legends are Roberto Martinez, Graeme Jones, Emile Heskey, Chris Kirkland, Kevin Sharp, Stuart Barlow, Nathan Ellington and John Filan, with more big names to be announced over the coming days.

The Dutch Masters will include ex-Latics stars Danny Landzaat and Jorg Smeets, as well as the likes of Sander Westerveld, Jan Kromkamp (both Liverpool), Michael Mols (Rangers), Glenn Helder (Arsenal) and Andre Ooijer (Blackburn).

Meanwhile, Scharner and De Zeeuw will be back together at the DW Stadium for one night only next month, and YOU can join them.

The two icons of Latics folklore will be guests of honour at ‘An Audience With...’ on Thursday May 12, where they will lift the lid on their careers in the game as well as their eventful time at Wigan.

It’s an intimate chance to meet two of Latics’ all-time greatest players – and biggest characters – and ask the questions YOU have always wanted answering.

Tickets are just £6 and available from the same outlets, although they are selling fast.
