Former Yeovil Town loanee Gavin Massey has moved up a division, after leaving Leyton Orient at the end of last season. He has signed for League One club Wigan Athletic on a two year contract, after exercising an option in his contract to leave Orient following their relegation into the National League at the end of last season.
Massey scored eight times in 36 appearances for the O's last season, and is now approaching 250 appearances at Football League level, mainly from four years spent with Colchester United in League One. He was watched by former Portsmouth boss Paul Cook last season, who has now taken over as Wigan's boss, and Cook said he was impressed with what he saw:
"Gavin is a player we feel can do really well for us. He played against Portsmouth twice last season and scored a great goal at Fratton Park. He's quick, strong and committed and can operate anywhere across the front three. For a player of his age, he has a lot of experience and has played a lot in this division. He adds great competition to the squad."
The 24 year old's career at Yeovil Town came during the 2011-12 season, whilst he was on the books of Watford, with ultimately a hamstring problem putting an end to his 17 appearances at Huish Park.
