Oldham assistant coach announces retirement

Oldham assistant coach Peter Carey has decided to retire from the game.

Carey joined the Roughyeds ahead of the 2016 season to work alongside head coach Scott Naylor. He previously worked for Salford and Swinton.

Carey’s decision to retire from the sport coincides with Naylor’s departure after seven seasons in the job at Oldham.

The Roughyeds have since appointed former Batley boss Matt Diskin as head coach on a two-year deal from 2020.

No announcements have yet been made about who will be included in Diskin’s backroom staff.
