Strikers pay surprise visit

3 November 2013

MacDonald, Philliskirk attend holiday activities

It was a successful week with over 70 children attending during the week.

Oldham Athletic Community Trust's half-term holiday activities, which were based at the Laticzone Study Support Centre at Boundary Park, again proved popular.

As a special treat, the children met Latics' strikers Charlie MacDonald and Danny Philliskirk as the pair fielded questions, signed autographs and posed for pictures with the young fans.

The children had many questions for the players as the pair spoke about their previous clubs, their life outside football and just how much they enjoy playing for Latics.

"It's fantastic to be able to meet the fans and spend time with them. Activities like these are crucial for the fans to feel a part of the club.”

MacDonald said: “It was a pleasure to stop by and meet the children who have attended the holiday course.
