A Trip Down Sheepfoot Lane - Dean Furman

10 July 2020

On this week's episode of 'A Trip Down Sheepfoot Lane', Roy Butterworth will be joined by former club and South African national team captain Dean Furman.

Furman arrived at Boundary Park in June 2009 under Dave Penney's reign in charge. He went onto spend four-years at the heart of the Latics midfield, making well over a century of appearances and scoring nine goals in all competitions. 

At the end of the 2010/11 season, Furman was awarded with the Football League Goal of the Year (2011) for his wonder strike after a great piece of play by Latics against Notts County in the August. The following campaign, Paul Dickov appointed the international as club captain.

In 2013, his time with the club came to an end as he left to join Doncaster Rovers, initially on loan and then achieved promotion to the Championship in dramatic fashion.

Born in Cape Town, Furman has proudly represented his country over 50 times and netted four goals. He's featured in two African Cup of Nations tournaments as well as playing a part in numerous World Cup qualifiers.

The videocast has already been recorded so questions do not need to be sent in again.

We'd like to thank Dean for taking the time out to share his Latics stories after his recent move back to England.

This will be available to watch on the club's YouTube channel (OfficialOAFC) tomorrow at 3pm.
