Wigan, top of Division One, found the space to include Burchill in the starting line-up only once in his time at the JJB Stadium. Nathan Ellington and Geoff Horsfield have struck up quite the partnership to fire the newly promoted Lancashire side to the summit of the Nationwide League.

But Latics manager Paul Jewell was full of praise for the departing Scotland international, commenting that "He gave us something a little bit different but unfortunately his lack of football meant he wasn't at the peak of his fitness and couldn't really break into our side.

"He's got sharper and stronger during his time here and I'm sure he'll now go on and get goals wherever he's given the chance."
