Peter Clarke and George Edmundson are rumoured to have played their last games for the Latics. Clarke’s contract is due to expire soon but he won’t be offered a new playing deal despite the 37-year-old wanting to continue. Pete Wild commented, “Pete has made a phenomenal impact on the club, he leads as a role model on and off the pitch. Any young player in the game looking to get into the game or establish themselves in the game should look no further than Peter Clarke. He’s the ultimate role model for this football club and many players across the country.”
George Edmundson, however, has the rest of his career to look forward to. With a year still left on his contract he has, rightfully, attracted the attention of such clubs as Sunderland, Preston North End and Stoke City who have all been impressed with his form. Both players will be sadly missed if they move on to other things.
