Parkinson Signs On At Wigan
Former Everton midfielder takes up coaching role with Latics.
Former Everton midfielder Joe Parkinson has taken up a coaching role with Saturday's opponents Wigan Athletic.
The 1995 FA Cup winner spent four years playing for the Lancashire outfit before joining Bournemouth and later moving to Goodison Park.
Parkinson's return to the Latics will see him working with the club's Academy players.
“Coming into work, getting your boots on and heading out to take sessions gives me such a buzz, and I’m made up to be back at Wigan Athletic doing exactly that," said the 41-year-old.
“This club was a huge part of my playing career, so to be offered the chance to give something back was important and made the role that little bit extra special.”
