Oldham Athletic appoint Pete Wild as manager until end of season

Just over a week since Paul Scholes walked out of Oldham Athletic, the club has announced interim academy manager Pete Wild as their new boss until the end of the season.

Wild previously took caretaker charge earlier in the season with a record of four wins, three losses and a draw from his eight games in charge, including that famous win at Fulham in the Emirates FA Cup.

The 34-year-old will face Grimsby Town in his first game as Head Coach on Saturday 30th March.

Speaking about the appointment, Wild said; “I’m looking forward to working with the players again and hopefully finishing on a positive note.”

“I know this team has quality and hopefully the fans will see the best of these players from now until the end of the season.”
