Last night (Tuesday 5th April 2022) three Oldham DC players all got their first starts in First Team Football, making starts for New Mills Football Club in the North West Counties Division One Cup. New Mills FC which boasts a highly experienced coaching team provided opportunities for several DC players to progress with three players getting opportunities against Matlock Town at Avros’s Vestacare Stadium in February.
With Albern Kilgour and James Heatley both coming off the bench in the recent win on the 29th March against Cheadle Town, both players including Faris Khan were handed starts against Cheadle Heath Nomads.
Albern with almost a dream start hit the post after 30 seconds after winning the ball back in centre midfield. The game was halted at 2-1 to Cheadle Nomads due to a serious injury to the Nomads Goalkeeper Dimeji Willan on 79 minutes, the focus instead on well wishes to the Nomads stopper from both sides and all spectators.
