We wish to provide fans with an update and some further information on the group and the stadium deal ahead of the meeting on Saturday for which over 75 people have already registered.

We wish to provide fans with an update and some further information on the group and the stadium deal ahead of the meeting on Saturday.

To remind everyone, our group is a fan group, with each of us having many decades supporting the club, allied to our business experience. We all wish to bring long-term security for the club, new revenue streams available to the club and real fan involvement.

What is clear, and recent events highlight, is the need to provide secure, long-term conditions for the club. We have spent several months in discussions with several parties as to the best way to achieve this.

People had asked what was going to be included and what won’t be in the purchase, and a deal has been agreed with the current landlords which includes (amongst other things): the freehold of the stadium, the North Stand in its entirety and the car parking space.

We hope to have everything in place before the start of the next season and are working on the ways that fans can get involved financially.

What Trust Oldham would ask of all fans is:

  1. Be patient, we/they are getting there
  2. Get to the meeting on Saturday and have your say
  3. Join the Trust and give us a stronger voice and back up our cause

See you Saturday for what we hope will be a good, constructive exchange of ideas, views and opinions.
