Law: “I’m Very Pleased To Be Here.”

10 July 2016

Steve Robinson’s first signing as Oldham Athletic manager was full back Josh Law and he is looking forward to getting going with his new club.

Law arrives at SportsDirect.com Park after two years in Scotland with Scottish Premier League side Motherwell but sighted personal reasons for his return to England.

The 26-year-old has played a lot of games, despite his relatively young age and he is excited by his move to Oldham Athletic.

He said: "I’m very pleased to be here. I’ve been up in Motherwell for a couple of years now and I’ve gained some good experience up there and enjoyed my time there. 

“I’m definitely looking forward to coming back down to England and testing myself at this level.”

After coming through the youth ranks at Chesterfield, Law moved to Alfreton Town in the National League North.

He played a key role in their ascent into the National League and admitted he gained vital experience there which will help him at this level.

“I think I played around 300 odd games for Alfreton Town so that has stood me in good stead because I was at a young age and it’s physical mens football and it got me where I needed to be,” he explained. 

“I went up to Scotland and carried it on there because it’s a tough league there so I’m looking forward to getting down here and trying something else.”

Law is no stranger to manager Robinson and he believes the new gaffer will make Latics more solid in what will be a strong division next season.

“League One is a really good league and there are some big clubs in this division now so it’s going to be tough but I think we’ll be ready this season,” he said. 

“The new manager will make us organised and I think we’ll do really well.”
