Latics' eleventh legend

12 December 2013

Simon Corney completes squad


The Wall of Fame on the exterior of the new North Stand at Boundary Park will have a gold brick for an eleventh legend.


As with the 10 existing club legends, Simon will be given a gold engraved brick within the Wall of Fame and supporters will be able to purchase a brick next to Simon’s with a silver inscription.

The club has decided to commemorate Chairman Simon Corney (pictured) within the new stand as a tribute for the work he has done in enabling the stand to be built.


"We think that this gesture is a fitting tribute to the work that Simon has put into the development of the stand and it is a thank you on behalf of the club.”

"The new stand is a tremendous step forward for the club in allowing us to move forward, both on and off the pitch.

Commercial Manager Jenny Warburton said: "Simon played a huge part in saving the football club 10 years ago and over the last few years, despite several setbacks, he has worked tremendously hard for the club.
