Norwood Added To Attack

3 August 2023

Oldham Athletic are thrilled to announce the signing of James Norwood from Barnsley for an undisclosed fee.

The 32-year-old joins Latics on a two-year deal, with an option of a further year.

James started his career with his hometown side Eastbourne, but his breakout season came in 2012/13 with Forest Green Rovers, when he found the net on 15 occasions.

After bagging thirty goals over the next two seasons, he linked up with fellow Conference National side, Tranmere Rovers where he scored 19 goals in his debut campaign, before netting 14 the following season as Rovers lost in the play-off final.

His tally of 20 in 2017-18 was enough to send Tranmere up, albeit through the play-offs, and in his first full season in the Football League, he finished as the league’s top scorer on 29 goals.

29 goals in his debut EFL campaign steered them to back-to-back promotions, returning to League One after five years away.

Welcome to Latics, James!
