After defeats both the First and Third Teams will look to return to winning ways on Saturday, while the Seconds have a two week break.

First Team

AFC Oldham v Bury Amateur AFC

Division One

Tameside Stadium


A good run form ended in horrible fashion last weekend when the First Team were on the wrong side a nine goal scoreline, Hooley Bridge Celtic coming away with a 7-2 win.

Manager Ross Elliott will be looking for a response on Saturday, when they face Bury Amateur AFC.

It will not be straightforward, though, Bury are a point ahead having played two games more, but were victorious in the previous meeting between the two earlier this season.

Bury came away with the three points that day, thanks to 1-0 win, but with Oldham playing the host this time out, there will be belief the home side will grab the victory.

Third Team

Duckinfield Athletic Reserves v AFC Oldham Third Team

Whitehead Cup-Round One

Astley Sports Village


A fiery game last time out, saw Jimmy Smith’s men fall to a 1-2 defeat at home to Hooley Bridge Celtic Reserves.

That defeat left them in seventh in the Division B table, ten points off top spot with a game in on hand over leaders Parrswood Celtic Reserves.

This week all that gets forgotten, however, when they face Duckingfield Athletic Reserves in the Whitehead Cup.

Athletic are currently mid-table in the division above, having already beaten Oldham’s Second Team home and away this season.

The Thirds have already shown their quality in this competition, though, beating Moston Brook Reserves away from home a few weeks ago.
