Preview: Norton on Wigan Athletic

24 September 2021

Christian Norton will be hoping if he gets the opportunity to make his Cheltenham Town debut on Saturday that he can use his most recent Wigan Athletic experience to make a difference.

The 20-year-old arrived at the club this week after a delayed start due to injury for his loan period from Championship side Stoke City.

And it was with Stoke that he appeared in a pre-season friendly at Wigan at the end of July.

He feels that recent experience of playing at the DW Stadium may be useful, as he looks to make a positive early start in his Robins career.

"It will be a great place to start. It's a big stadium and it'll be a great experience.

"I've already experienced it briefly in pre-season with Stoke, so I kind of know the whole layout of the stadium and the atmosphere so I think it'll be a great way to kick-off the season.

"It's my first time out on loan so it's a new experience for me. The players, staff and the gaffer have made me feel really welcome."
