Latics limited edition prints go on sale
Date published: 15 December 2020
The prints been signed by Joe Royle
Oldham Athletic has commissioned UK based sports artist SPARKIUS to create 125 limited edition prints for sale.
The image commemorates one of the most successful periods in the club's history, and depicts club legends Andy Ritchie, Roger Palmer, Ian Marshall and Joe Royle, with a packed Lookers Stand providing the backdrop.
The prints are signed by Joe Royle.
The commemorative pieces have been supported by McQuillan Boiler Services, a long time suponsor and supporter of the club. Director Andy McQuillan said "As season ticket holders it’s always nice to be able to help in any way possible and when I saw Jamie asking for sponsorship to fund the artwork I was more than happy to lend our support, especially for something which will help remember our 125th year.”
Latics’ Business Development Manager, Jamie Stoddart added: “The reaction from fans towards the idea of this at the beginning of the year was brilliant and for MBS to step forward and allow us to get this produced was really pleasing.
“For the McQuillan family to have been lifelong supporters made it even more special. Like everything this year, the virus made it difficult for Joe to sign each one personally initially, but everyone knows his character and love for the club so it meant it had to be done and was completed recently thanks to his determination.
“I’m ecstatic that it’s finally a reality and extremely delighted with the finished product.”
The pieces are now for sale priced at £100.
They are available by emailing Jamie.Stoddart@oldhamathletic.co.uk in the first instance, stating your quantity and details.
