Sinfield: “Hopefully It Will Be A Big Year For Latics.”

9 June 2017

Rugby League legend and Oldham Athletic supporter Kevin Sinfield believes next season could be a good one for the club.

Speaking ahead of the March for Men walk in aid of Prostate Cancer UK, Sinfield took time to talk to iFollow Latics and believes the club can challenge at the right end of the table next season.

He said: "In John Sheridan’s time last time I thought he did a great job so I was delighted he came back.

"He gave the team a lift when he came back and I wish him all the best. I probably don’t get down as much as I should but it’s a great club and hopefully it will be a big year."

Sinfield is a life-long Oldham Athletic supporter who only has fond memories of the club.

"I came to one game last year, I brought my kids and they enjoyed it. I used to stand in the George Hill Lower back in the day," he commented.

"I used to come with my dad and brother in the 90s when I was about 12 or 13 so I have really good memories.

"I’m still an Oldham fan so I always look for the results every week and I’m chuffed we stayed up this season."

Sinfield was here at the club to walk with Jeff Stelling on his March for Men campaign.

"I’m looking forward to it and I’m very proud to be here, especially as I’m in my home town," Sinfield said.

"I played a very small part last year and the walk came through Leeds and I did the final mile with them. In fact, they got lost so I helped them out a little bit!

"It’s great to be here and I think it’s great what Jeff is doing. Prostate Cancer UK is a charity which is pretty close to my heart.

"I have family and friends who have been affected so I’ve been an ambassador for a number of years and now I’m retired, it’s great to come out and do a number of events for them.

"I did the London Marathon recently and to be in my home town is pretty special. I’ve not had far to come this morning and the weather has been kind this morning, but we all know that might not last!"
