Former Hatter Boyce lifts FA Cup for Wigan

Ex-Town star Emmerson Boyce lifted the FA Cup at Wembley on Saturday as he captained underdogs Wigan Athletic to a shock 1-0 victory over favourites Manchester City thanks to Ben Watson’s last-minute header.

Boyce scored nine goals in 211 appearances for Luton between 1998 and 2004 after coming through the club’s youth ranks.

He joined Crystal Palace on a free before signing for Wigan for £1million in 2006, for whom he has played over 200 times.
