COMMENT - Boyce’s legacy

IT is fitting to see Emmerson Boyce recognised for the work he has done in helping to kick racism out of football.

As well as being one of the longest-serving players at the Latics and now a club legend after leading them to FA Cup glory, he is also a thoroughly decent human being.

He spends so much of his free time undertaking charity work and campaigning for just causes and he deserves all the credit he gets for his work in Wigan and beyond.

Well done to Emmerson and long may he continue to be part of the club.
