You might not be eligible.

On the Wigan site it's billed as an U23 match.

Christopher Park:

From what I've seen, the place looks very nice but smallish and functional. No big wow factor or anything. It seems to have semi-permanent buildings. Sort of quality portacabins on proper foundations. 3 grass pitches.

Here's a Daily Mail article from 2013 when Wigan submitted plans to develop Christopher Park:

Wigan unveil grand plans for Christopher Park training ground

Wigan have unveiled multi-million-pound plans to redevelop their Christopher Park training ground into a leading academy.

Chairman Dave Whelan, acting head of the academy Matt Jackson and chief executive Jonathan Jackson were at the DW Stadium last night to discuss the plans with local residents.

The first team currently train at Christopher Park but will move to a purpose-built site out of town with the existing facilities redeveloped to focus solely on the club's young players.

Plans include the building of a full-size indoor training facility, a state-of-the-art all-weather surface, modernised changing facilities, a gymnasium and offices to go alongside the six existing outdoor pitches.

Work is expected to start at the end of the season, providing the club are granted planning permission.

Jonathan Jackson said on the club website: ‘Our continuing development both at first-team level and as a community club relies on our ability to attract and retain good quality professional players, develop young talent through our academy and the football club being a focal point of the community.

‘These exciting new plans are the first part of a major new development aimed at creating a Category 1 Football Academy at Wigan Athletic.

‘With this facility we intend to attract and develop young players into the next Leighton Baines, someone who came through the ranks at Wigan and now regularly represents England at full international level.

‘Our dream is for the club to become synonymous with excellence on and off the pitch and this first stage of our development is a huge step in the right direction to make that dream come true.’

That looks more like a reserve team than the side put out at Morecambe.

Fringe players, new recruits, improving first teamers' fitness, giving game time.

Also, letting some of the better youth players rub shoulders with senior pros.

Agree Spell, much better use of this fixture player wise. Pity Ward got some minutes last night, otherwise I'd have had him playing today as well.

Report: Wigan Athletic 2-1 Blackpool

Reserves Suffer Central League Cup Defeat





Blackpool’s reserve side suffered a narrow defeat to Wigan Athletic at a windswept Christopher Park on Wednesday afternoon.

The starting XI was a mixture of youth and experience with the likes of Michael Nottingham, Sean Scannell and Ben Tollitt involved alonsgside Cameron Antwi and Owen Watkinson. New signings Jordan Thorniley and Marc Bola also started, giving them valuable game time to continue their preparations for first-team action.

Blackpool had a good chance to score in the opening 15 minutes of the match. Andy Kanga won possession back well in the middle of the area and spread the ball wide to Sean Scannell, but the winger’s cross couldn’t be turned home by those in the penalty area.

With half an hour gone, the hosts took the lead thanks to Kyle Joseph’s poachers finish from a cross on the right hand side.

Just 90 seconds separated Blackpool conceding at one end to scoring at the other through Owen Watkinson, with the young striker finishing well at the near post.

With half-time looming, Kyle Joseph doubled his and Wigan’s tally with a smart finish after cutting inside and firing past Charlie Monks in the Blackpool goal.

Despite some late chances for the Seasiders in the second half, Wigan were able to hold firm and claimed the victory at the expense of the Seasiders who next face Carlisle United at Squires Gate in a Central League Cup fixture on Tuesday afternoon.
