Pic Special: We Had Perchinho

"We've got Perchinho" will no longer ring out from the terraces at St. James' Park after James Perch joined Wigan Athletic on Wednesday.

The likeable defender, who could turn his hand to a number of positions across the back and in midfield, signed a four-year deal with the Championship side, who will be looking to bounce back to the top flight at the first attempt.

Arriving from Nottingham Forest in the summer of 2010, Perch became a fans' favourite on Tyneside during his three-year spell at the Club, in which he made 81 appearances and scored one goal.

To pay tribute to the 28-year-old, we have delved into the archives to create this gallery of images of Perch's time in the famous black and white stripes.
