Oldham Athletic have boosted their defensive options with the signing of goalkeeper Neil Etheridge on a short-term contract, subject to Football League clearance.The former Chelsea and Fulham goalkeeper has been training with Latics and appeared in the behind-closed-doors fixture with Bury on Tuesday.
The 24-year-old enjoyed spells on loan with Charlton Athletic, Bristol Rovers and Crewe Alexandra and is a full Phillipines international.
Etheridge signs until December 30 and goes straight into the squad to face Bristol City on Saturday.
Manager Lee Johnson commented on the signing: "It is a good signing for us. He has a decent reputation in football and he's a good goalkeeper that is lacking a bit of experience.
"He comes in to push Rachubka for the number one spot."
Etheridge will wear the number 38 shirt with Oldham Athletic.
