Jack Croft joins Oldham on season-long loan

Josh McAllister

Oldham have announced the signing of centre Jack Croft on a season-long loan from Wakefield.

Croft, 20, has made eight Super League appearances as well as two in the Challenge Cup for Wakefield, and made two appearances for Oldham on dual-registration in 2020.

He joins Matt Diskin’s side to help cover injuries to Ben Heaton, while Cam Leeming recently announced his retirement.

Croft said: “I’m really looking forward to getting some game time and playing again alongside the Oldham boys, many of whom I know from last time I was there.

“I see my role as trying to help Roughyeds to get some more league points, hopefully starting with Halifax on Saturday.

“I was very happy at Oldham last time I was there, but I had the benefit of having their great fans behind me then and this time we’ll be playing without fans, at least to start with, and that will seem very strange and different.”
