Latics completed the signing of the vastly experienced Liam Hogan on a two-year contract in summer 2022.
The 33-year-old defender, whose professional career spans more than ten years with seven clubs, arrived at Boundary Park straight on the back of a second promotion from the National League with Stockport County last season.
Hogan featured more than 80 times at Edgeley Park over a period of two-and-a-half years, culminating in captaining the squad that claimed the title on the final day of the campaign.
A central defender by trade who can also feature at full-back, Hogan began his career in non-league with Halifax, earning two promotions as the club worked its way up the divisions.
More than a century of games during three years at the Shay earned him a move into the EFL with Fleetwood, also spending time on loan at Macclesfield.
Hogan then spent a season at Tranmere before a distinguished spell at Salford, captaining his home-town club to a double promotion, including success in the National League North before leading the Ammies to an historic climb into League football in 2019.
Also earning a number of individual accolades, Hogan totaled more than 100 appearances at Moor Lane, his seven goals from the back also representing the most prolific period of his career. He then moved to Stockport in February 2020, again taking the armband during his two full seasons.
