Trust holiday activities

Oldham Athletic Community Trust's half-term holiday activities at Hodgeclough Primary School were a huge success with over 80 children attending..

As a special treat, the children got the chance to meet a number of Latics' players with Lee Croft and Jonathan Grounds popping in on Thursday.

The pair spent an hour with the children as they spoke about their careers, the life of being a professional footballer and also the recent FA Cup matches against Liverpool and Everton.

Trust staff would, on behalf of the children, like to say a huge thank you to Lee Croft, Jonathan Grounds, Connor Brown and Cliff Byrne for attending saying its helped create some fantastic memories for the children.
