Latics keeper in Sixfields loan

Wigan Athletic goalkeeper Lee Nicholls has joined Northampton Town on loan until the end of October.

The 19 year old Liverpool-born England youth international shot stopper has impressed in the Latics Reserves and has enjoyed a number of loan spells, gaining Football League experience with Accrington Stanley last season.

"We needed a keeper who has talent and Football League experience," said boss Aidy Boothroyd.

"He is a good keeper, he did well at this level last season and he knows a bit about League 2.

"He has come here to get games under his belt. We are in a fortunate position as we already have an experienced, quality goalkeeper on our books and he is well on the way to recovery after a nasty injury. In addition, in Dean Snedker we have a young goalkeeper of massive potential also on our books and that is fantastic for us. I am sure Lee will come in and do a good job for us."
