Latics have teamed up with Liverpool John Moores University taking on two students to help the players with their sports nutrition.
In an ongoing partnership with the football club, students Marc Fell and Ben Light, who are currently undertaking their masters degree in Sports Nutrition, will assist the players once a week offering help and advice on dieting and healthy eating.
The partnership also allows Latics' players to take advantage of the excellent facilities the university has to offer.
Fitness and goalkeeping coach, Anthony White, said: "It's great to have a partnership with the university and be allowed access to the top facilities. The university already works with Premier League clubs so it's great to be associated with them.
"Marc and Ben have brought fresh ideas and are hungry to succeed so it's another sign of the club moving in the right direction and we would like to thank Liverpool John Moores University for their support."
