If the reserves, U19s etc play at Robin Park one would imagine there not being any further use for Orrell.
Selling that for housing will provide a sustantial amount of revenue to modernise the Robin Park facilities.
It will be good to have the U age teams playing next door to the DW.
Wigan RL cutting its bases down from 3 to 2 making more efficient use of everything.


If the club (as stated above) only take on the £250k annual lease from the council would the club really look to invest on 'world class' improvements? Surely only ownership/part ownership would make this worthwhile.

Interesting times indeed.

Based on last night's attendance, the Latics could play some of their home games there and still accommodate their remaining support. It'd also save Mr Whelan some cash on relaying the DW pitch if less games were played on it.
