Oldham Athletic will be represented at the EFL Kids Cup final at Wembley in May after South Failsworth Primary School beat Rochdale to set up a clash against AFC Wimbledon.
It wasn’t the best start for Latics as they drew with Doncaster Rovers and were beaten by Blackburn Rovers. However, three wins back to back against Rotherham United, Bradford City and Shrewsbury Town secured Athletic a passage through to the semi final of the competition.
Latics faced Fleetwood Town in the semi final and beat them 3-1 to set up a final against near neighbours Rochdale. After a hard fought game played in great spirit, Oldham Athletic came out 1-0 winners which was enough to seal their place at Wembley.
The game will be played against AFC Wimbledon on the Wembley surface prior to the Sky Bet League One play off final on May 27.
