Latics trio exit on loan deals

Date published: 01 February 2024

Latics duo Joe Nuttall and Kurt Willoughby both headed out of Boundary Park on Thursday after securing loan deals elsewhere.

Striker Nuttall has joined League One strugglers Cheltenham Town on loan until the end of the season.

The 27-year-old joined Latics in December 2022, making his debut away at Notts County, where he scored Oldham’s equaliser.

He finished the 2022/23 season on seven goals in 23 league games, after netting on the final day against Bromley.

Nuttall has featured 12 times in the league this season for Latics, scoring against York City.

Fellow front-man Willoughby has completed a loan move to Ayr United for the remainder of the campaign.

The striker, who signed for Latics in the summer from Chester, joins the Scottish Championship side until the end of this term.

Willoughby, 26, has made six starts and a further 12 substitute appearances so far this campaign for Oldham, scoring in the FA Trophy tie against Mickleover.

He joined Latics from Chester ahead of the current season having previously played for York, Fylde and FC United of Manchester.

Yesterday (Friday) Brennan Dickenson has joined Hartlepool United on loan until the end of the season.

The 30-year-old joined Latics following a trial last summer, agreeing a one-year deal.

Making 15 league appearances and scoring five goals since signing on the eve of the season, Dickenson now links up with Kevin Phillips’ side in the North East.

Latics travel to Ebbsfleet United today in the National League.

The TNT Sports televised match kicks-off at 5.30pm.
