A Trip Down Sheepfoot Lane - Iain Dowie, Paul Murray & Martin Ogden

19 May 2020

On this week's episode of 'A Trip Down Sheepfoot Lane', Roy Butterworth will be joined by Iain Dowie, Paul Murray and Martin Ogden.

Iain Dowie originally became the assistant manager of the club in 2002 but entered the hot seat shortly after his arrival. Dowie led Latics into the Second Division play-offs in the 2002/03 season with a squad that included David Eyres, John Sheridan, Fitz Hall and Les Pogliacomi. The 55-year-old had an 18-year playing career and represented Northern Ireland 59 times.

Current Academy Manager, Paul Murray, became a fans’ favourite at Boundary Park after he spent three-and-a-half years as a player with Latics, making 105 appearances and scoring 15 goals for the club. Murray also spent time as the first-team coach under Lee Johnson's reign.
