Free football

Last updated : 21 January 2017 By The Chairman

The Latics are offering free entry to all supporters, including visitors from Peterborough, for Tuesday night's game. It will be Shez’s first match back in the dug-out after serving a touchline ban.

Mark Moisley said, “It was the idea of the chairman. Primarily, it comes down to trying to build momentum with John Sheridan being back at the club. We got the win against Gillingham and though it will be a different game and a tough test at Shrewsbury, we want to maintain the feel-good factor at home where results up to now haven't been great and crowds low. There is also the added element that Peterborough fans travelled a long way to the game that was postponed, so hopefully this goes some way towards making up for that disappointment. It comes on the back of our reducing admission prices to £15, the lowest in the division, and we want to generate interest in the town and really pack people in to the ground.”
