Wilson: “I’m Delighted To Sign.”

1 June 2017

Full back Brian Wilson was delighted to put pen to paper on a new one-year contract.

Wilson, who is the club's longest serving player, was offered a new contract by manager John Sheridan at the end of the season and he was more than happy to renew.

He said: "Me and the manager briefly had meetings at the back end of the season and he wanted me to stay for a further year so I’m delighted to be here and delighted to have signed the new deal.

"I’ve had a very good three years here and I enjoy coming in every day and working hard. I’m happy that it’s all done and dusted and I can’t wait to come in on June 29 for the start of pre-season."

Wilson, who has made 85 league appearances for Latics since his arrival in 2014, has full faith in manager John Sheridan to bring the right players into the football club to push for the play-offs next season. 

"We’ve got very good experienced players that are here and that will be signing," he commented. "We have seen over the last few seasons, the manager has brought in young additions and they have done really well.

"I have full faith that he will bring in the right additions and we can push at the top end of the table next season and I’m really confident that we will do that. 

"We know we need to improve on the goalscoring side of things and hopefully with the right additions, we can push on."

The work has not stopped for the 34-year-old since the end of the season as he prepares for the new 2017/18 campaign.

"I’ve been doing my B-licence for two weeks so that’s a lot of running around so I’ve been keeping fit that way," he said.

"I’ve been in the gym and I’m slowly starting to do a bit of running so I like to keep myself fit over the summer and I always will."
