Fans formed a long queue outside Boundary Park today (Monday) when discounted season ticket sales resumed following the takeover of Latics by Frank Rothwell’s family.

One fan in the queue purchased a season ticket for a supporter who lives in Kuala Lumpur.

“The overseas fan says he will only get to a couple of matches, but was happy to make a £300 donation to support Latics' new owners," said a friend.

Darren Royle, the club's new Chief Operating Officer, apologised to the fans for the the wait.

But one person in the queue said: “Nobody seemed bothered as fans exchanged Latics memories."

The discount is to continue all week.

Royle has also confirmed in a letter to fans that the Joe Royle Stand will be fully reopened once the new season starts.

The 100 Club and Executive Boxes will also be reinstated.
