Oldham have captured three players, headed by play-anywhere back Lloyd Roby from Widnes Vikings
Fighting to avoid relegation from the Betfred Championship, second-bottom Oldham have nipped in ahead of today's (Friday) signing deadline to capture three players, headed by play-anywhere back Lloyd Roby from Widnes Vikings.
Roby (22), who initially joins the Roughyeds on a two-week loan, will train at Oldham tonight and hopes to be in contention for Sunday's bottom-two derby clash against Swinton Lions at Heywood Road.
Oldham have also signed Huddersfield Giants and Lancashire academy prop Fenton Rogers on loan and taken 20-year-old half-back or hooker Brad Jinks, formerly of Castleford Tigers, from local amateurs Waterhead on trial.
Rogers, son of former Oldham, Rochdale and Swinton prop Wes Rogers, has had quite a week, celebrating his 18th birthday, playing for Lancashire academy and now joining his home-town club on loan on the strongest recommendation of Giants head coach Ian Watson.
