Wigan Athletic’s European Adventure part 1 – Slideshow

From non-league to Europa League it’s been quite an adventure for the fans of Wigan Athletic. Most long-standing Latics fans could never have dreamt that they would one day play in a European competition, so this was a night to be savoured.

There were an amazing 2,500 Wigan fans in Bruges on Thursday night for the club’s first ever game in the Europa League against SV Zulte Waregem. A Lancastrian invasion of the picturesque Belgian city was a sight to behold as the blue and white army thronged the Market Square for a special night to remember.

Last season’s FA Cup winners started the European campaign with a satisfactory 0-0 draw at a rain-soaked Jan Breydel Stadium. To celebrate this historic event here’s a selection of images taken by me and some other fans during our trip to Belgium.
