Norwich City new boy Kieran Dowell has donated £1,000 to the ‘Save Our Club’ campaign created by fans of his former loan club Wigan Athletic.
Dowell spent the second half of last season on loan at the DW Stadium and flourished - scoring five times in 13 appearances for the club.
The attacking midfielder also picked up the club’s Goal of the Season award for his stunning volley in their 8-0 demolition of Hull City in July.
Dowell joined the Canaries from Everton last month - ending his long association with the Merseyside club.
The ‘Save Our Club’ campaign has raised in excess of £500,000, with former Wigan manager Roberto Martinez pledging £5,000 as the Latics continue their search for new ownership, after a 12-point deduction for going into administration saw them relegated from the Championship.

Speaking to City’s channels after completing his move to Carrow Road, Dowell said: “It was really sad the way it ended at Wigan. We were unreal from when I joined in January until the end of the season. We climbed the first mountain to get out the relegation zone and then got given another one and we couldn’t quite make it at the end.”
