FA Cup winners Wigan have cancelled their proposed pre-season trip to Morecambe.

New Lactics boss Owen Coyle is to take his side on a pre-season tour of America meaning the friendly at the Globe Arena on July 13 is off.

The game had been arranged when Roberto Martinez was still in charge at the DW Stadium.

Morecambe are trying to not only find opponents for the July 13 date but also July 30 after Chorley cancelled a proposed clash at Victory Park.

Friendlies so far confirmed are home games against Burnley on July 9, Middlesbrough on July 17, St Mirren on July 24 and a trip north of the border to St Johnstone on July 27.
