On Friday, May 11 – five years to the day since Latics shocked the football world by defeating Manchester City at Wembley – many of the Latics heroes will be at Kilhey Court to mark the fifth anniversary of the Wigan-based charity.

Management team Roberto Martinez, Graeme Jones and Graham Barrow, skipper Emmerson Boyce, club captain Gary Caldwell and the legend that is Paul Scharner will be among those present for what is sure to be an unforgettable night.

Also there is THE actual FA Cup trophy, giving fans a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to have their photos taken with the silverware AND those who made it possible.
