Introducing Latics' new scholars

Latics have signed 10 schoolboys who will become first-year scholars at Boundary Park when the players report back for pre-season training.

They are all from the North West and include Jack Tuohy who is an Oldhamer.

Here's the lowdown on all the new trainees.

Paul Tyson: At 6ft 6in, the Liverpool-based goalkeeper literally stands head and shoulders above the other lads. He only recently came on to the radar after being released by Blackburn Rovers and was signed on the recommendations of goalkeeping coaches Paul Gerrard and Josh Ollerenshaw.
Callum Etches: A right back/centre back from Stockport who was formerly with Sheffield United. The tough-tackling defender has been with Latics since Christmas and has played in the youth team.

Ryan Ellison: The centre back from Liverpool has been at the club for four years and has played for and captained the youth team as well as appearing for the reserves. He is a leader, both on and off the field.

Ellis Gordon: A centre half from Salford who has been on the books of Burnley and Manchester United. Described as a top player, Latics have been aware of him for several years, but only recently captured him.

Eddie Fulwood: A centre half/holding midfielder from Manchester has been with Latics for six months following his release by Manchester United. He is described as a good athlete.

Jack Tuohy: The midfielder/second striker is a season-ticket holder and from a family of avid Latics' fans. Oldham born and bred, the Royton and Crompton School pupil has been at the Centre of Excellence for a number of years.

Danny Byrnes: The attacking midfielder is from Manchester and a Welsh international. He is a creative player who also plays for Greater Manchester Schools and has been in the system for several years.

Jordache Walters: A quick, strong forward, he is another Manchester lad who has been at the club for six months following his release by Blackburn Rovers.

Emil Tansinda: A quick, strong and direct striker from Manchester. He can play anywhere along the front fine and has been at the club since joining them at under-14's.

Ben Grant: The goalscoring midfielder is another Mancunian and has been in the system for several years. He has decided to stay on at school and will only train and play when his studies permit.
