About the LSC
Where are they?
Still independent! Still serving worldwide Latics fans! The LSC was established in 1987 and the website began in 1996. The LSC website is the longest established 'unofficial' web site of Oldham Athletic AFC and is also the longest established message board (forum) of OAFC, official or not. Originally intended to keep Canadian fans abreast of all matters associated with the Latics, the LSC provides a news service and a platform for Athletic fans the world over to express their views on activities at Boundary Park.

Gevaro Nepomuceno has signed a one-year contract extension for the 2019/20 season. The 26-year-old winger made 48 appearances last season and scored six goals with some good performances for the club. He has been named in the provisional squad for the CONCACAF Gold Cup this summer with the Curacao side. Neppo said, “Playing for this club I’ve had some special memories and I’m looking forward to next season now. I’m settled here and I have a good relationship with the fans so it was an easy decision to extend my stay."
Glasgow Rangers’ boss Steven Gerrard is the latest manager hoping to table a successful bid for Latics' highly rated defender George Edmundson. The 21-year-old has already held talks with the former Liverpool favourite and Gerrard is trying to convince Edmundson to move to Glasgow, thus snubbing offers from several English clubs. According to rumours, Peterborough United have already made verbal offers for the 6'-3" centre half but Gerrard is hoping that the VIP treatment afforded to George on his visit, and the facilities at Rangers will help to swing it in favour of the Glasgow outfit; plus the fact that they don’t come much bigger than Rangers with their 50,000 regular and enthusiastic fans.
Since Edmundson was named in the League Two team of the year he has been in high demand and is rated in the £500,000 price range. He appeared in 54 games last season and won the ‘Community Trust Player of the Season’ as well as the ‘Players Player of the Season’ awards and Hull, Preston, Sunderland, Stoke as well as the Posh have all shown interest.
The Latics have finally won something following the news that they have won the 2019 Emirates FA Cup Giant-Killing Award. It came after the highlight of the season when the Latics went away to Premier League Fulham and, against all the odds, fought back from a 1-0 deficit to come away from Craven Cottage with a remarkable 1-2 victory. They beat off competition from AFC Wimbledon, Barnet and Newport County who all did well in the cup. Callum Lang commented, “It was probably the best moment of my life. It was a good moment for me, all my family were there and the way the game went was all a factor. The team performance from start to finish was great, we had a plan, we stuck to it and got the result.”
