Oldham release trio


Oldham have confirmed that Adam Files, Will Hope and Richard Lepori have left the club.

The club has confirmed, however, that hooker Adam Files, back-row forward Will Hope and full-back Richard Lepori have left.

Oldham chairman Chris Hamilto saidn: “For different reasons, they haven’t been offered new contracts. We thank them for all they’ve done for the club while they’ve been here, particularly Adam, who has been with us for four seasons.

“We wish them well for the future, wherever it might take them in or out of the game.”

Hooker Hope (Ireland) and fullback Lepori (Italy) are currently playing in a 2017 World Cup qualifying competition in which Lepori scored four tries from the left-wing position in Italy‘s 62-14 hammering of Serbia in Belgrade.
