Goalkeeper joins Latics from Non-League

Last updated : 06 January 2016 By Kieran Makin

Wigan Athletic have today confirmed the signing of Torquay United shot-stopper Dan Lavercombe for an undisclosed fee.

The 19-year old has signed a two-and-a-half year deal at Wigan, but as part of the transfer agreement he will spend the remainder of the 2015/16 campaign on loan at Plainmoor.

Lavercombe made his debut for the Gulls when he was just 18 years of age.

He has since gone on to establish himself as Torquay's number one 'keeper this season - making 11 appearances so far for the Vanarama National League side.
