It has been a long time in coming but Oldham Athletic supporters finally took their seats in the eagerly-awaited new North Stand for yesterday’s clash with Sheffield United.Yesterday’s test event allowed 1,200 supporters to take their seat in the facility, which was 50% of its maximum capacity.
It also allowed fans a chance to take a look around the stand, spotting their personalised bricks and seeing inside the concourse areas for the first time.
Supporters reacted to the new stand opening on our social media channels and here are a few comments from Twitter:
