Latics' fan features in FA Cup advert

Latics will be featuring prominently in an advertisement to be screened shortly before tomorrow's final of the FA Cup.

Sponsors Budweiser have commissioned a two-minute advert which is the story of this season's competition.

And with giantkillers Latics battling through to the fifth round, they get considerable exposure.

One of the shots features Christine Glossop, a season-ticket holder in the Chaddy End who has been supporting Latics for over 50 years.

Christine, who is from Middleton, explained that renowned photographer Stuart Roy Clarke was at Latics' fourth-round tie against Liverpool and captured her.

She believes the moment was when Steven Gerrard struck Latics' crossbar.

"I was contacted and had to sign a consent form for the photograph to be used in the advert," she explained.

It is to be screened about half an hour before kick off at about 4.45pm. If you cannot make it, you can take a look on the link here

The advert is also to feature on giant advertising hoardings outside Wembley.
