Langtree to sit out Scorpions clash
Date published: 10 June 2014
DANNY Langtree will miss only his second game in over a year when South Wales Scorpions come to Whitebank on Sunday.
Charged with a punching offence in Oldham’s 46-16 home win against London Skolars, he has entered an early guilty plea and received a one-match ban. The decision to plead guilty early and avoid a two-match ban was taken after close scrutiny of the match on video.
Oldham chairman Chris Hamilton said: “We don’t think Danny was the instigator but we can’t deny he was guilty as charged.”
One half of an amazingly consistent and durable second-row pairing with Josh Crowley, the 23-year-old former St Helens academy player turned out in 23 of Oldham’s 24 games last season and has played in all 12 (10 league and two cup-ties) this year.
Full-back Tom Whitehead, who lost his place to Steve Nield after the 38-12 defeat at Hunslet in April, has left the club. He hasn’t attended training for the past few weeks and hasn’t contacted the club.
Hamilton added: “In view of that he won’t be considered for inclusion in any of our future plans.”
Local lad Whitehead joined Oldham at the end of last season and made three appearances.
