Simon Jones joins festivities for Wigan Youth Zone grand opening

Yesterday, Simon Jones attended the launch event for the long-awaited £6.3 million Wigan Youth Zone. As part of the day's festivities, he served as a guest judge for a 'Battle of the Bands' competition.

The Wigan Youth Zone is the United Kingdom's largest youth club, open for all young people in the Wigan borough aged eight and over. The center has received capital support from The Premier League and the Wigan Athletic playing squad.
