FA Cup at Latics

25 January 2013

Trophy pays visit to Boundary Park

Bookmakers William Hill, the FA Cup's official betting partner, brought the iconic trophy to Boundary Park today.

And with the silverware came footballing legends Andy Ritchie and Alan Kennedy.

Ritchie was a member of Latics' team which reached the FA Cup semi final in 1990 while Kennedy is one of Liverpool's most decorated players.

Oldham schoolboy James Touhy also got the chance to have his photo taken with the trophy.

The 10-year-old from Moorside came to fame when he was caught on camera in the crowd at Nottingham Forest celebrating Latics' third-round victory.

James, whose older brother Jack plays for Latics at under-16 level, is from a family of diehard Latics' fans spanning three generations.

The photographs show Ritchie (left on both photos) with Kennedy and also with James.
