Connolly Nets Twice On Debut

Defender Callum Connolly scored twice on his debut after joining Wigan Athletic on loan until the end of the season.

The England Under-19 international linked up with the Latics in time to be eligible for their visit to Burton Albion on Saturday and grabbed both goals in a 2-0 win.





Connolly, who made his Everton first-team debut as a substitute against Southampton in April last year, has been a regular for David Unsworth’s Under-23s side this term but will now aim to help Warren Joyce’s men climb away from the Championship relegation zone.

The youngster, who can play anywhere across the back or further forward in midfield, had a month-long loan spell at Barnsley in 2015/16, making three appearances in League One.
