Arjan de Zeeuw’s Dutch Masters squad has been confirmed for next month’s Joseph’s Goal charity match against the Latics legends at Ashton Town.

It features three former Latics men, with Denny Landzaat and Jorg Smeets joining De Zeeuw in wearing orange for the big game on Friday, May 13.

And the rest of the squad is packed full of Premier League experience, as well as a mountain of Dutch international caps.

Dutch Masters squad: Arjan de Zeeuw, Denny Landzaat, Jorg Smeets, Michael Mols (Rangers), Glenn Helder (Arsenal), Jan Krompkamp (Liverpool), Martijn Reuser (Ipswich), Andre Ooijer (Blackburn), Sander Westerveld (Liverpool), Clyde Wijnhard (Leeds), Tim De Cler, Patrick Paauwe, Orlando Engelaar, Marco Miltenburg, Zeb Den Uyl.

Michael Brown - still playing for League One outfit Port Vale - and Springfield Park stalwart Ian Kilford are the latest two Latics legends to sign up for duty.

They join the likes of Roberto Martinez, Graeme Jones, Paul Scharner, Emile Heskey, Chris Kirkland, Kevin Sharp, Stuart Barlow, Nathan Ellington and John Filan in confirming their attendance, with more big names to be announced over the coming days.

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

Meanwhile, Scharner and De Zeeuw will be back together at the DW for ‘An Audience With...’ on Thursday, May 12.

It’s the perfect chance to get up, close and personal with two of the club’s greatest ever players and most larger-than-life characters.

Tickets are just £6 and available from the same outlet.

Both events kick-off at 7.30pm.
