DW Stadium (Wigan Athletic)

This was the briefest of visits and maybe that’s why, but I can’t say I enjoyed this one very much.

A pleasant gig in Wigan was rounded off with a quick drive past Wigan’s home but I’ll be honest and say I was desperate just to get home.

I do like that there’s a stand named after Springfield Park, their previous home, but that’s one of very few redeeming features.

It’s in the middle of a retail park and just doesn’t seem special. I hate that you can pop for a Frankie & Benny’s  before the game.

Still, I’ll end on a positive note and say that it is easy to access and visible for the tourist, although I didn’t pay enough attention to how much you could see inside. But at least it’s another ground off the list.

Woodhorn Lane Update

Not much to report this week other than more brickwork externally, and what looks like a couple of internal walls beginning to take shape too. Worryingly it feels like it won’t be long until all external walls are completed and things will seem a lot slower.

My FA Cup book, which included Wigan’s epic Semi Final tie against Arsenal, is available here.
