Bromley vs. Latics

24 September 2022

A new era begins for Latics as David Unsworth takes to the dugout for the first time as Oldham manager.

The new gaffer will be looking to start in a similar vein to how Latics finished their last game as they were able to give John Sheridan a fitting send off with a late win against Eastleigh at Boundary Park.

It begins for Unsworth with a trip to Bromley.

The Opposition

Bromley have played their football at this level since they won promotion from the Conference South in the 2104/15 season by winning the league.

Since their promotion, they have successfully established themselves as a solid mid table outfit with their lowest league finish coming in their maiden campaign in the fifth tier when they finished a respectable 14th place.

Their best finish to date came in the 2020/21 season where they finished 7th.

They play at the Hayes Lane ground and have done since 1938.

Form Guide

Bromley have enjoyed a solid start to their eighth season in the National League, winning five of their opening nine league matches.

This leaves them in seventh position, currently occupying the last available spot in the play-offs.

Their recent form has been good especially at home where they are yet to lose a game this term, Latics will be hoping to end that record.


Watch out for

Adam Marriot is a man in form for the hosts, netting four times in his last three outings.

This includes a brace in Bromley’s last fixture against Maidstone and he will be keen to maintain his rich vein of form when Latics come to town.

He is a summer signing, joining on a free transfer after departing divisional rivals Barnet.

He showed his class and ability to score goals at this level for his past employers as he scored 20 goals for the Bees last campaign, also taking home their player of the season award.

He has also played for Cambridge United, Cambridge City, Bishop’s Stortford, Stevenage. Lincoln City, Royston Town, Boston United, King’s Lynn Town and Eastleigh.

In the dugout

The man in the dugout for the hosts is Andy Woodman.

The former goalkeeper has been in the post sine March 2021. His only other previous job in management is with Whitehawk where he had a brief spell and helped them to staying in the division.

Elsewhere in his coaching career, he often followed his old teammate Alan Pardew around and was part of his coaching staff at West Ham United, Charlton Athletic, Newcastle United and Crystal Palace.



Unsurprisingly given their home form, Bromley are favourites for this clash priced at 3/4.

For David Unsworth to get off to the perfect start as Oldham manager, you can get odds of 3/1 whilst the draw is at 5/2

Match officials

The referee is Garreth Rhodes, and he’ll be assisted by David Nicholson and Shaun Jones, with Harrison Blair occupying the role of fourth official.


Match coverage and information

Live audio commentary is available on Latics Player, guiding you through the match.

As detailed in our media update at the start of the season, the club has had to make several adjustments to how we cover games as a result of relegation to the National League.

Whereas in the EFL it is a necessary for all clubs to provide ISDN facilities, there is no such requirement in the National League. As a result, commentary from away games such as this will have to be provided by different means.

No ISDN facilities are available for club media at today's game, and whilst the media team has worked on alternative ways of providing commentary during the summer, broadcasting from new grounds sometimes brings its own challenges. Commentary will be available but we would like to thank supporters for bearing with us with any difficulties that may arise while we continue to adjust to life in the new division.

Alternatively, supporters can also follow the game with live updates on the club's official Twitter account: @OfficialOAFC

As always, we will endeavour to ensure confirmation of the line-up is published as soon as possible on social media.

However, supporters should note that team sheets in the National League are not exchanged until an hour before kick-off. This is 15 minutes later than in the EFL and as a result, the line-up is likely to be published slightly later than in previous seasons.
