Shez told the official website of how he believed both winger Chris Taylor and full back Kelvin Lomax have a big future at the club.

On Lomax, Shez said ‘ Kelvin is an excellent player and for me was our best performer in our last home game…Kelvin is my kind of footballer, he definately has a big future here.’

These comments will no doubt help motivate the youngster who recently signed a new 3 year deal with ‘Tics. However it has not always been glory for Kelvin who spent the summer of 2006 laying driveways after being released by the club, yet it all turned out well with him getting re-signed and he now has the potential to become an integral part of the Latics squad over the next few years.

On Taylor, Shez said ‘I’m pleased for Chris because he has been getting abit of stick from the crowd…The pleasing thing is, he played very well. I tell you what I would hate to have to mark him.’ He went on to say ‘Chris never hid and that is the sign of a good player.’

Taylor was a crucial piece of the play-off puzzle last year and the fans at Boundary Park can only hope he continues with his football education and fires us to glory (or a hefty transfer fee!).

Thanks has to be given to youth coach Tony Philliskirk who has brought through some quality players over these past few years, keep up the good work.
