Pollitt pens new Wigan contract

21 May 2010 - 10:56:36

Veteran goalkeeper Mike Pollitt has agreed a new one-year contract with Wigan Athletic.

The 38-year-old made just six appearances for the Latics last season after proving back-up for regular number one Chris Kirkland, but has signed up for another campaign at the DW Stadium.

Pollitt, who has been with Wigan since their time in the Championship in 2005, is now the club's longest serving player.

"Mike is a terrific goalkeeper first and foremost with great experience and he continues to set standards on a daily basis that the younger players can follow," manager Roberto Martinez told the club's official website.

"He has been patient during his time at the club but has never been anything less than totally professional and committed to the club.

"He is also an infectious character who is great to have around the dressing room and we are all delighted to have him back."

Pollitt will continue helping out the club's caching staff alongside his role in the first team.

He added: "Although he (Martinez) likes me round the place I think more importantly he rates me as a goalkeeper and hopefully I can do as good a job next year as I have done in the past.

"Next year I'll move up a level and hopefully get the goalkeeping qualifications I need to become a coach, but for the time being I'm still concentrated on what I can still bring as a player."
