SNEAK PEEK: Where Are They Now? Lee Croft

17 August 2018

In this week's programme we spoke to Lee Croft about his spells at Oldham Athletic and what he has been up too since retirement. Here is a sneak peak of what to expect in this week's Boundary Park Life.

The former Manchester City trainee made 119 appearances for Oldham and was part of the famous FA Cup runs the Latics had in 2004/05 and 2012/13.

A fan favourite, Croft always showed hard work and creativity every time he put on an Oldham shirt.

Arriving in 2004, Croft initially joined on loan from Manchester City as a teenager, a time Croft remembers well.

“I remember it being a really enjoyable time, Brian Talbot was manager at the time and I remember Kevin Keegan pulled me in and told me I was going, and I was just excited to play first team football.” He said.

“I was about 18/19 at the time and my first game was against Thurrock in the FA Cup which we won.

“We had a really good side and it was a decent three months whilst I was there.”

For the rest of Croft's interview and much more, make sure you pick up a match day programme for this Saturday's fixture at home to Macclesfield Town (3pm).

Programmes only cost £3 and can be purchased from stands around the ground.

Whilst you're here...

The EFL annual general meeting, which took place over the summer, saw clubs vote to remove the obligation to print a programme at every home game.

Despite this change in the league rules, Latics will continue to produce a 64-page programme for every home league game and a reduced edition for cup matches - but it needs your backing.

While our club partners continue to support us, and fans still buy the programme in sufficient numbers, we will continue to produce a programme for the foreseeable future.
