VISIT: Westwood Academy

22 March 2019

Oldham Athletic players Tom Hamer and Chinedu Uche visited Westwood Academy this week.

Tom and Chinedu met year one and year two pupils to support the Oldham Athletic Community Trust schools programme delivery.

They were on hand to answer questions from the classes about how they both became footballers. The pair also took part in PE lessons, helping to coach the year one children during a football lesson, whilst year two challenged the pair to a 'keepie-uppie' competition.

The visit to Westwood Academy, an OACT school partner, was part of the Community Trust's schools programme which sees OACT coaches working within the school on a weekly basis delivering a variety of different lessons.

Currently OACT has 18 local school partners – for more information on the work that they do within local schools, or to become a school partner, please email
