Wigan are looking to develop new training facilities

The 89-acre site on the outskirts of Chorley was established as a golf course in 1994, and includes a club house, bars, restaurant and a function suite.

The golf club will continue to operate as normal during the current golf season and all competitions and fixtures will be honoured.

If the necessary local authority planning permissions are forthcoming, work could begin at the site by the end of the year; a previously outlined development near Wrightington Hotel and Country Club will now not be proceeding.

The Championship club have been at their present training location - Christopher Park - for nearly 20 years, purchasing that facility from Wigan College last year.

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
