Oldham Athletic are pleased to confirm the signing of winger Ben Tollitt after a successful trial with the club.
The 27-year-old former Everton youngster who has also featured for Tranmere and Wrexham, arrives at Boundary Park on a one-year contract.
Having trained with Latics for the past week and featured in Saturday’s friendly against Mansfield Town, Tollitt becomes the eighth summer addition made by manager John Sheridan.
“I’ve been very impressed with Ben having seen him closely recently and he’ll provide good options for us with his attacking qualities.
“Ben is a player who can make things happen, he’s got a good turn of pace, he is very direct and is also capable of weighing in with a good number of goals.
“We’ve been looking to strengthen our options in terms of our attacking play and Ben has certainly got the ability to do well for us this season.”
Tollitt has spent the past two seasons at AFC Fylde, scoring 17 goals from wide areas including a hat-trick against Chorley last January as he made a good impression on the club.
Having started out at Everton, he made 12 substitute appearances for Portsmouth before returning to the north west with Tranmere.
After appearing 23 times on loan, he made a further year-and-a-half at Prenton Park, scoring a total of 18 times and was part of the squad that earned promotion from the National League in 2018.
He also spent a season at Blackpool, in addition to two loans at Wrexham, before moving to Fylde in the summer of 2020.
Welcome to Latics, Ben!
