Wigan midfielder Watson feels he has come of age

Ben Watson felt he came of age at Wigan Athletic this season.

Watson shone in the 'quarterback' role created for him by Roberto Martinez, and admits he can't wait to resume duty next term.

"I've been happy with my own form, the new role has suited me," Watson told the Wigan Evening Post.

"For most of my Wigan career I've played further forward, but the gaffer asked me to do a job a bit further back and I enjoyed it."
