Pollitt signs new Wigan contract

Wigan goalkeeper Mike Pollitt has signed a new contract with the club, keeping him at the JJB Stadium for another season.

The 35 year old told the club's official website: "I've had a chat with the gaffer (Chris Hutchings) and I'm really impressed with how he spoke about the club."

Pollitt continued: "This is a great place to be at - the atmosphere here is as good as any I've been at in my career.

"You expect there to be competition at every club you go to and I can genuinely say that we all get on as players.

"Every player wants the chance of Premier League football and I am delighted to be staying."

Hutchings said: "It's great to have 'Polly' on board again.

"You need to have more than one quality goalkeeper in the squad, and he has proved himself to be a Premiership standard player during his time here.

"He had to be patient last year, and was unlucky to pick up an injury mid-season. He's a great pro, a really valuable member of the squad, and a lively character in the dressing room."
