Wigan Athletic will bounce back, says chairman David Sharpe

29 April 2015

Wigan Athletic chairman David Sharpe is eyeing up an immediate return to the Sky Bet Championship, after their relegation was confirmed.

Rotherham United overcame Reading 2-1 on Tuesday and that means the Latics will finish in the division's bottom three, regardless of what happens on the final day when they travel to Brentford.

Chairman Sharpe told the club's official website: “It’s a sad day for everyone associated with Wigan Athletic but we will bounce back, I want that to be the main message to our fans.

“Our only target next season is promotion, nothing else will suffice and the job of rebuilding the club is already well under way under Gary Caldwell and his staff.

“Football is full of examples of clubs who have come back stronger after relegation and I want us to be the latest one of those.

“We have an amazing opportunity to start afresh and begin an exciting new era for the club.”
