Hamilton joins Wigan
Former Rochdale number two David Hamilton has returned to Wigan to become the Latics new chief scout.

Hamilton spent four years at Rochdale and had a spell as caretaker-manager last season.

However, the 41-year-old left Spotland following the appointment of Paul Simpson as manager earlier this summer and has returned to Wigan where he was a player in the mid-1980s.

During his two-and-a-half-year spell with the Latics, Hamilton played alongside current Wigan boss Paul Jewell and his recently appointed first-team coach David Lowe.

"It's great to return to a club that you have a great affinity with and that's how I feel about Wigan," Hamilton told the club's website.

"It's an exciting opportunity for me and a new challenge that I'm really looking forward to.

"It's a new role but one I'm sure that I can adjust to as I have spent a lot of the last four years travelling around taking in matches and watching players."
