Push The Boundary: Still unsure about meeting with Lemsagam

Date published: 10 December 2019


Founding members of the Push The Boundary fan group have told the Oldham Evening Chronicle that they still haven't received an invitation to meet Oldham Athletic owner Abdallah Lemsagam.

Speaking to the "All Things Latics" Podcast this week, the founders of the group said Managing Director Natalie Atkinson had approached them during Saturday's protest at Boundary Park.

Adam Keeley told the podcast "She said that he's back in the country in a couple of weeks, and is happy to talk to "fans and groups of fans.  We're not sure if that means us specifically".

Adam was joined by fellow-founders Will Gough and Steve Shipman for the hour-long show to discuss the aims and progress of the Push The Boundary group.

Asked what the group wanted, they told hosts Simon Smedley, Billy Quarmby and Simon Brooke that they wanted the club to sit up and take notice.  "There are a large number of fans out there who aren't happy with what's going on at the club.

"People are voting with their feet and we needed something for fans to get behind.  We wanted to be a slightly rebellious group, but we want to do things the right way and engaging with people to get them on board.

We're not trying to build a wall between us and the club.  We want the club to engage with us"
