Womens Session Renamed to Women’s Recreational Football 

Our Over 30’s Women’s session, now rebranded to 'Women’s Recreational Football', is held at the Honeywell Centre every Tuesday evening, 7pm-8pm. The session was created back in September 2021 in partnership with Manchester FA to encourage women over 30 to participate in football, whether they are new to the sport or have played for a number of years, during the lead up to what was a historic summer as the England Lionesses won the Women's Euros 2022 at Wembley. 

12 months on from the session being launched, we now partnered with ‘Active Through Football Oldham’ who help support the session and have provided full Oldham Athletic kits for the women to wear when taking part in competitions. After consulting with the participants and project partners, the session will now be named ‘Women’s Recreational Football’ to allow the session to be more inclusive to a wider age group of participants! Using the term 'Recreational Football' emphasises the session is all about playing football for fun, fitness and social interaction rather than competition.

After the success of the Women’s Euro’s this year, we have received a huge amount of interest from women that want to play. Any women aged 18+ are now welcome to join the session and to take part in the fun! 

Latics Fun Day at Spindles Town Square 

The Latics Fun Day took place at the Spindles shopping centre with a variety of different activities, workshops, face painters and special appearances from Chaddy the Owl and Spindles Bear. The aim of this was to create a fun and engaging event for the Oldham community to link back to the football club being at the heart of the town. We also gifted 200 FREE ticket to the Eastleigh fixture for people who attend the event!

Supporting OAFC at Enterprise Oldham Expo 2022

First Play On The Pitch Of The 2022/23 Season 

As the new football season is well underway, our Play On The Pitch has begun with our school partners Woodlands Primary and Werneth Primary getting to play against each other at half time on the Boundary Park pitch on the 17th September when Oldham Athletic took on Eastleigh.  

PL Kicks partnership with Oldham Council & Oldham Youth Service 

Working alongside Oldham Council and Oldham Youth Service, we have extended our PL Kicks provisions on Mondays. 

We have been able to add a variety of indoor activities alongside the outdoor football to make the session more fun and engaging down at the Honeywell Centre. 

Launched our October Soccer School 

We are delighted to launch two soccer schools taking place during October Half Term following the success of the previous soccer schools this year. E-ACT Royton & Crompton Academy will be the host venue from Monday 24th October through to Thursday the 27th for a mixed soccer school for ages 7-12. The other is a brand-new Girls Exclusive Lionesses Soccer School, hosted at Crompton House from Tuesday the 25th of October through to Friday the 28th. This is a great opportunity for children to stay active and have fun during the school holidays as well as developing their football and personal skills.
