Defender Tom Hamer has signed his first professional contract with Oldham Athletic.
The 18-year-old, who has progressed through the club’s youth system, has signed a two-year contract.
Hamer has already featured for Latics in the league and in the Checkatrade Trophy this season.
He made his first league start in the 0-0 draw against local rivals Rochdale and he provided the assist for Duckens Nazon’s first goal against AFC Wimbledon on Saturday.
Hamer said: “I’m delighted to sign my first professional contract. It’s a proud moment for myself and my family.
“I’m now looking forward to working hard between now, the rest of the season and beyond to ensure we maintain our League One status.”
