Goalkeeper Mike Pollitt extends Wigan deal
Tuesday 12 June 2012
Wigan goalkeeper Mike Pollitt has agreed a new one-year deal to extend his stay with the Latics into an eighth season.
The 40 year-old was the club's first Premier League signing in 2005 and, with his current short-term deal - signed last summer - due to expire, he has been handed an extension for a further 12 months.
Pollitt has spent most of his time at the DW Stadium as a back-up, reflected in his tally of just 50 appearances in all competitions under four different managers, and last featured for Wigan's first team in a FA Cup tie in February 2011.
"Above all Mike is a fantastic goalkeeper, whose experience and professionalism sets a high standard in training every day," manager Roberto Martinez told wiganlatics.co.uk.
"He has had to be patient for opportunities on the pitch, but his commitment is never questioned and for the younger members of our squad he remains the example to follow, and we're delighted to have him with us next season."
