All Snow Removed From Pitch

30 January 2015

Oldham Athletic staff, management, players, youth team players and supporters all joined together to remove snow from the pitch in preparation for tomorrow's game with Notts County.

After an appeal for volunteers on our official website, supporters turned up in their droves to help the ground staff move the four inches snow off the pitch.

Some bought their own shovels to assist the ground staff, who have worked tirelessly throughout the week to ensure the game had a chance of going ahead.

Manager Lee Johnson, Chief Executive Neil Joy and full back Joseph Mills all picked up their shovels and ensured all remaining snow was removed from the surface.

Head groundsman Lee Williams said: "I'd like to thank all volunteers and all members of staff for all their hard work. It's been a long hard slog but we have managed to clear all the snow and we've given the game every chance of going ahead. 

"Thank you to Steve Halley from Cheshire Turf Machinery for lending us a toro workman machine to get the job done quicker. Without that we would probably still be out there now!"

The club would like to thank everyone for their help and special thanks go to all volunteers.
