Oldham made the league one play off`s last season but were beating by Lancashire rivals Blackpool in the semi finals. They will be looking to obtain a play off place again next season.

The loss of Chris Porter is a major blow, his goals were a major cog of their success last season. They hope that the signing of Craig Davies and Michael Ricketts will help plug the gap left by Porter`s departure.

It may take time for them to settle next season but come the end of the season they should be near the play off`s. Whether they have enough to make the play off`s for a 2nd consecutive season remains to be seen.


Player`s in (major) – Mark Crossley, Craig Davies, Jean Paul-Kalala, John Thompson, Lee Hughes, Mark Allott and Michael Ricketts

Player`s out (major) – Chris Porter and Will Haining
