A Trip Down Sheepfoot Lane - John Sheridan, David Eyres, Les Pogliacomi & John Harbin

27 May 2020

On this week's episode of 'A Trip Down Sheepfoot Lane', Roy Butterworth will be joined by four special guests for the fourth episode.

The group know each other very well after good experiences at the club in the 2000s, with two dialling in from 'down under' this week to share their memories.

The main guest is the one and only John Sheridan. A club legend at Boundary Park, he made 164 appearances for Latics before having three permanent spells as Manager. Sheridan guided Oldham to the League One play-offs in 2007 as well pulling off the 'Shezzurection' in 2016 to save the club from relegation to League Two. Impressively, he repeated that feat the following season, against all the odds.

Also joining in is the magnificent David Eyres. He arrived at the club in 2000 and became an instant Latics favourite. Overall, he made over 180 league appearances, chipping in with his fair share of goals over a six-year period which included some spectacular efforts. The experienced winger was also voted Oldham fans' player of the season for the 2001/02 campaign.

Another familiar face to the Oldham faithful is Les Pogliacomi who had two spells at Boundary Park which altogether lasted five-years. The former goalkeeper holds a joint record with Connor Ripley at Latics, recording 18 league clean sheets and 19 in all competitions in the 2002/03 season and is remembered fondly by a large section of the fanbase due to his long tenure at the club between the sticks.

Finally, last week's guests spoke very highly of John Harbin and his impact at Oldham Athletic. He first joined in 2002 as fitness conditioner and sports psychologist and got the squad into peak physical shape before following Iain Dowie at a number of other clubs. In 2017, he returned to Boundary Park under John Sheridan's third permanent reign in charge, and was also around the club during last season before moving back home to work in Australian Rugby.

If you want to ask any of the guests something, please email it to natalie.atkinson@oldhamathletic.co.uk and roy.butterworth@yahoo.co.uk. The deadline to submit your questions is tomorrow, Thursday 28 May at 11am.

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