Stobbs Agrees New Deal

21 June 2022

Oldham Athletic can confirm that Jack Stobbs has agreed a new one-year contract ahead of the 2022/23 season.

The 25-year-old, who started 17 times in addition to a further 13 substitute appearances last campaign, has signed a new deal after concluding negotiations with manager John Sheridan.

Born in Leeds, the wide player progressed through the youth ranks and into the first team at Sheffield Wednesday before time on loan at Port Vale. He also played briefly in Scotland for Livingston.

Operating in either wide midfield or at full-back throughout the last campaign, Stobbs scored twice for Latics during his first season at Boundary Park.

We can also confirm that striker Mike Fondop has also agreed a one-year extension to remain at Latics after initially arriving from Hartepool United in January.

The club has been unable to agree new terms with Nicky Adams, who was out of contact at the end of last season.

We would like to thank Nicky for his efforts since joining Latics in January 2021, making a total of 68 appearances.

On securing a deal with Stobbs, Sheridan said: “I’m pleased that Jack has agreed to stay and having worked with him last season, he has definitely got the potential to be an important player for us going forward.

“We know we need to be aggressive in our attacking play as a team in the National League and Jack gives us options that will be important in terms of creating and scoring goals.”

Stobbs said: “I’m delighted to be staying with the club and I see this season as a big opportunity for us to put things right as a team.

“Shez has been a massive part in my decision to sign a new contract. I got on really well with him last season, he’s a manager who believes in me and we’ve all got to pull together as we look ahead.”

Player sponsorships for the 2022/23 season are now available, priced at £250+VAT with home and away packages on offer. To sponsor Jack, email commercial@oldhamathletic.co.uk.
