Oldham will be back at home for the first time in over two years on Sunday.
After playing at Stalybridge Celtic’s Bower Fold ground for the previous two seasons, Scott Naylor’s new-look Oldham side returns home this weekend to play their final pre-season game against Betfred League 1 rivals Keighley Cougars at the revamped Vestacare Stadium, Limehurst Village, 3pm kick-off.
The Roughyeds will be playing on a brand new state-of-the-art acritical pitch for the first time, but they are used to it, having trained on it regularly during pre-season.
Sunday’s game will be Oldham’s first at the Vestacare, formerly Whitebank, Stadium since their 31-20 win against the Cougars in the League 1 Promotion Final in 2015.
On the clash, Naylor said: “It will be a fast game on that suface – just the opposite to what we had in those atrocious conditions at Barrow last Sunday.”
Admission prices are £10 adults, £6 concessions, £2 Under-16s with a £2 across-the-board transfer for a seat in the stand.
