Chris Tyrer joins Naylor revolution

Oldham have made their fourth new signing for 2013 in the shape of North Wales Crusaders prop Chris Tyrer.

Tyrer, 27, was coached by new Roughyeds boss Scott Naylor during his academy days at Salford, and has also played for Swinton in the Championships.

He said: “I was looking for another club and as soon as I heard Scott was the new boss at Oldham I gave him a call.

“He’s a good coach and I know what he expects of his players. He’ll have his sights on honours, no doubt about that.”

Tyrer signed for Salford from St Helens amateurs Blackbrook, graduating from their academy before moving to hometown club Saints where he played in the Under 21s.

Naylor said: “I know him well from our Salford days. He won’t take a backward step, and you need that in a front-rower.

“He’s versatile, with good skills and with an engine that enables him to play for long spells.”

Tyrer’s signing takes Naylor’s squad numbers up to eight for the new season.
