Wigan Athletics Player of April: Callum McManaman

April was a good month, the game at Wembley the highlight and it was fitting that one of the stars of that day would be our player of the month. Young Callum is starting to make a very big impact in the footballing world.

He was the clear winner and this seasons surprise package certainly had been that, how this young man could have changed our season had be played from the start? His pace and guile on the ball make him a potent threat to any defence, not a lot of players have managed to deal with him yet.

Good with both his left and right foot, showing this with his great left footed effort against Tottenham Hotspur, the winger can only go from strength to strength, and bagging the second in the FA Cup seni-final at Wembley. You could see how much it meant to the player.

One for the future and his call up to the under-21 squad is a worthy reward and I hope he will do Wigan proud. That is if the injury he sustained at Arsenal wasn’t too serious, being carried off on a stretcher is never nice. Hopefully it is nothing serious.

It has been a great return for the 22 year old this season. Scoring six times in 30 games for the club this season, that includes substitute appearances. A player very much for the future, and next season in the Championship he will be ripping it up.
