Wigan Post go digital to cut costs

Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.

An analogue telly in a digital age. I only buy the Post if my kids are in for world book day pics 😂
Rugby, Family and Strava... that’s about it for me tbh

I’ve seen Ellery Hanley, Martin Offiah and been dragged to Wigan games since memory... absolutely lucky!

Well I think it's a real shame, and takes away half the reason for buying a Saturday Post.

Can't believe this won't hit their circulation figures further. Taken with the recent news about Wish FM, these are not happy times for local media.

Only reason to get it was the local sports news. Will lose sales to at lot of Latics and RL fans.

The Wigan Observer is getting as bad; published on Tuesday but rarely in the shops before Wednesdays these days.

All due to moving printing to Birmingham I believe.
