Will was born in Oldham but moved to South Africa when he was 9 and was never taken to a match before leaving the UK. His interest was piqued when we were promoted to the first division in 1991 and he could watch the occasional match on TV in South Africa. He met his wife Clare at Hartlepool away in 2007 and they married in Cuba in May 2011.
Will works in accounts for a payment processing company.
First ever Latics Game
Oldham v West Brom on Tuesday 1st October 1996, a thrilling 1-1 draw. I’ve only ever seen Oldham in League 1…..
Most memorable game attended
Liverpool at home in the FA Cup. I’d missed the Forest away match and really didn’t believe we’d have any chance of getting a result from this. The feeling of elation and bewilderment outside the ground after the match was brilliant.
