Oldham Athletic fans call for change at the club.

Date published: 07 November 2019

Almost 600 Oldham Athletic fans have signed an open letter to the club, calling for improvements. 

A new group called Push The Boundary was set up on the 31st October, with an open letter highlighting specific areas of concern about the way the club is operating.  

Signatures have risen to an astounding 596 in the space of 1 week, in support of some of the suggested improvements needed. 

One of the founders of Push The Boundary, told The Oldham Evening Chronicle: "This clearly shows the level of dissatisfaction and disconnect that supporters currently feel at the current state of our beloved Oldham Athletic Football Club.

"There is a large cross section of fans who have put their name to this letter, and while a minority of these supporters may not currently be season ticket holder or regular attendees of games (anymore), each and every single one of them hold the club close to their heart. 

"We remind you once again that you will require their support to achieve your purported “vision” for this football club.

"Fans are the lifeblood of all football clubs, and as proven over the years, especially Oldham Athletic." 

Push The Boundary say they're fully committed to voicing or representing supporters short, medium and long term concerns in a variety of ways, but reiterate that what they do will be peaceful and law abiding at ALL times. 

They've also set up a survey, in which supporters could place on record their concerns, frustrations and overall feelings towards the club at this current time, all whilst remaining anonymous.

The survey results will be publicly reported in a clear and transparent manner via a number of media sources. 

The Oldham Evening Chronicle have contacted Oldham Athletic for a response, who have told us they have no comment to make at this time.
