And the young defender wasted no time impressing his new club by scoring at the end of the first half of his debut for the Latics.
He added a second after half time, putting Wigan into a 2-0 lead.

I was lucky enough to see his debut v Southampton last season. Looks a good player. Hopefully he can progress.

I'm sure he's predominantly a left back. Interesting that Wigan have/had Garbutt who plays the same position and has sunk like the titanic.
Hope Connolly kicks on, has a great 5 months and becomes understudy to Baines next season.

Callum has scored quite a few headers, so this is no fluke. Really hopes this gives him the platform to go on to greater things with our great club.

From what I've seen, he has a real chance of making it.

I wish him a decent career but reckon it's Championship at best.
I may take some flak for this but I'm prepared. I'm the same guy who wished Garbutt all the best but predicted little.
I'm not a total killjoy. Davies and Connolly now there is the future.

I'm not saying you're wrong I'm just surprised that -- if true -- Koeman is ready to ditch him without much of a chance given that Browning was in the first team before his serious injury.

He's the most versatile defender we've got and he's got an eye for a goal. Hopefully next season, he's given a chance in the first team.

One of those is Connolly. He is definitely one of Unsy's crop who stands out for an exceptional attitude, along with Davies and Kenny (would say Ledson too but he is off playing first-team football).
Like Ledson, none or all of them could be playing league football elsewhere before long but one thing I'd bet on is that you'll be hearing more of them all in the future.

Any of the more mature fans recall that game by any chance, or a time when Gabby scored two goals in the same game?
Delighted for Callum to grab a brace on his debut. I will have to keep up with his loan spell, with what is a relegation looking team in Wigan unfortunately, perhaps he can help move them away from the dreaded drop!
Does anyone know what is happening with Luke Garbutt? Has he been sent back to EFC, or is he injured?!?
38 Posted 16/01/2017 at 16:31:23
win. Sandy played in a shirt that had no number on it.
39 Posted 16/01/2017 at 16:45:49
From my own records I can only find one occasion that Gabby scored twice in the same match. That happened at Goodison against Spurs in October 1965, Jimmy scored a penalty in the opening minute and scored later in the game; Fred Pickering got the other Everton goal and Alan Mullery scored the consolation goal for Spurs.
40 Posted 16/01/2017 at 16:58:00
Garbutt is injured. I don't know if he's played much lately but he was on the bench earlier in the season.
41 Posted 16/01/2017 at 17:00:33
42 Posted 18/01/2017 at 00:09:03
Hopefully, this is another youngster for the future!

Sheedy and Unsworth. Both cult characters in their day.
