Looking forward to getting started will be great to be playing football again.
Just a quick question the registration falls on the same night as the Rochdale v Oldham game is there any way we can register another evening or earlier that night.

You will be able to register the following week. Ideally it would be on 17th but appreciate people have plans already. We will let you know your team details a day or so after the registration date, so you will know what colour top to wear and what time to attend for your game. You will need to arrive 30 minutes prior to your Kick Off so the coach has enough time to take your measurements.


Hi everyone,
I am away until the 18th so will be registering on the 24th if that’s ok?
looking forward to getting healthy again.

Hi All

Please keep your eyes peeled on your emails over the next few days for information regarding the first weigh in session.

Looking forward to meeting you all and assisting in your weight loss.



Hey everyone

All signed up and looking forward to be 17th!

Afternoon Gents,

Hopefully you would have received the email about the registration evening, but please see the below to make sure…

Due to a large number of players contacting us to inform us of their absence from the proposed registration night on April 17th, it has been decided to postpone the registration for a week. This is not the norm, however we understand the importance of the Oldham Athletic V Rochdale fixture. It will also leave the coach under quite a bit of pressure on the first game week to take all of your measurements.

The registration night will now take pace on April 24th at Boundary Park starting at 6pm, this will be finished in time for yourselves to watch the Oldham Athletic V Southend game. Tickets are being provided free of charge (by Oldham Athletic Community Trust) to those of you who don’t have a match ticket already. When you arrive at Boundary park on April 24th please report outside the O2 suite which is left of the main entrance to the ground. You will be met by myself and Robert Curran from Oldham Athletic Community Trust.

Please take note of the parking signs outside the ground and do not park on the street as it will result in a parking ticket

This will now mean the league fixtures will start on May 1st at the Honeywell centre.

In addition to the above, we would like to make you aware of a pretty exciting opportunity… To play on the pitch at Boundary Park! This event will take place on Thursday May 3rd between 7pm - 9pm. More info in the coming weeks will be revealed about this, but for now put the time/date in your diary!

Hi Danny,

Welcome aboard.

Your coach Rob Curran will be in touch to let you know the team you will be in along with all of the other info you need to know.



I’ve just joined and am wondering what my next step is?

Hi, I have joined at the same time as a friend. is there any way we can make sure we are on the same team?



Welcome aboard.

Your coach Rob Curran will be in touch very soon to confirm what team you will be playing for along with colour etc.


Hi Michael

Your coach Rob Curran will be in touch soon to confirm details, but having had a quick look at team numbers I don’t think that will be possible - but like I say Rob will be in touch and let you know all the info.
