It's Roy's Book Launch Today!

7 December 2019

Roy Butterworth's book 'The Fan On The Inside' is out today and is available to purchase and collect at Boundary Park for just £8.99.

'The Fan On The Inside' is a collection of his own personal memories starting from 1963, when he first joined the team at Boundary Park right through to the current day.

The lifelong Latics fan has created a book that features characters such as Jimmy Frizzell, Joe Royle, Alan Hardy and a touching tribute to his good friend Gordon Lawton.

On the announcement of his creation, Roy said; "After what I've seen I've been up, down, around and sideways.

"This book is a light-hearted way of sharing what I've been a part of. Looking back I can't quite believe what has happened.

"Oldham Athletic, as you can tell, has been a big part of my life, and still is, and I hope you enjoy the book as much as I did creating it because it's brought back a lot of memories."

Proceeds raised from the sale of the book will be donated to Maggie's Oldham.

If you have ordered the book but can’t attend today’s game you will be able to contact Roy next week to sort this out.

Roy will be going around the ground today selling books and handing the collections out. He can be found with his army of volunteers including Stuart Pike and Jack Dearden in both Fans Bars.
