SNEAK PEEK: From The Changing Room - Rob Hunt

19 October 2018

Defender Rob Hunt is in this week's main feature interview in the Boundary Park Life matchday programme.

DEFENDER Rob Hunt reckons Athletic gaffer Frankie Bunn has been a breath of a fresh air at Boundary Park this term, writes the Oldham Chronicle’s Simon Smedley.

Former striker Bunn rejoined the club as manager in the summer, taking the reins following Richie Wellens’ departure after Athletic dropped into League Two.

Hunt was at Boundary Park last season as 2017/18 closed with such desolate disappointment, but Bunn has lifted everyone at Athletic as they continue their push towards the much-craved play-off positions.

Asked about Bunn, Hunt said: “He’s been brilliant, not only for me, but for the club too.

“His enthusiasm and his work rate are right up there.

“What he wants to apply to the team too, works. Everyone in the team understands what their role and their job is.

“The togetherness around the club and between the boys is great too.

“Hopefully that shows. I think you could see that when we came back against Colchester, while on the other side of it, we’ve been seen to dig in away from home.

“I hadn’t really been aware of the manager before, it has been a whole new experience for me, but it’s been good and I’ve really enjoyed this season so far.”

For the rest of Hunt's interview and much more, make sure you pick up a match day programme for this Saturday's fixture at home to Port Vale on Saturday, October 20 (3pm kick off).

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.
