CALDWELL ENJOYING THE PERKS
WIGAN boss Gary Caldwell expressed his delight after the club took up the option on David Perkins’ contract to tie the midfielder down until 2017.
Perkins, 33, joined Wigan in the summer after being released by Blackpool, and has played every minute of the Latics’ League One campaign.
“We knew what we were getting with ‘Perks’ – so it’s no surprise he has done so well,” Caldwell said.
“Everyone can see what he gives us; he’s the sort of player every team needs and typical of the man, there are no airs and graces – he just gets on with his job day in day out, and gives us great consistency.”
