Latics allays pitch fears

Press Releasein Football

A Chanpionship winning amateur football team could be looking for a temporary home to defend its title after Oldham Athletic's £20million stadium plans took a step forward.

Latics chiefs have moved to reassure amateur teams like Avro FC, newly-crowned winners of the Manchester League, that they want them to utilise the community facilities they are creating.

Oldham Athletic has bought the Lancaster Club as part of the 30-acre site off Broadway, Failsworth - which controversially includes Lower Failsworth Memorial Park.

But it has now given the Lancaster Club, which has existed for 60-years to encourage social and sporting events in the local community, six-months notice to close - leaving users worried for their futures.
