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.

Frankie Bunn was full of praise for his squad after the 1-4 win at Bradford City on Tuesday. Bunn said, “It was all about application and we applied ourselves really well to everything: challenges; work rate; energy and goals. Since I've been here I've said it's about the squad and not the 11 and it was all about good application and everyone bought into that as they should. We showed really good energy levels, ally that to a little bit of talent and you end up with that result. It was a good team performance and that is what we are about. We're a family group, we're very positive, we are very together as a group and we'll keep on bouncing back.”
“I thought [Chris O’Grady] was outstanding. He has a lot of critics but people within the team know what he does, what he offers and what he brings to the table. His work ethic is incredible and he's got a great appetite for the game, he's a good pro and he looks after people. [Jordan Lyden] looks a good player. He looked confident, comfortable and he wants to play. He was hungry to play and he's got a great smile on his face after that and hopefully this could kick start his career. He's played in the Premier League at a very early age and he's suffered horrific injuries, we've given him a lifeline and lets hope he responds to it.”
Wigan Athletic are being taken over with a £22m buy out and former Latics boss Joe Royle and his son Darren will be joining the board. Current Chairman David Sharpe and ex-Manchester City chief executive Garry Cook will be will leaving the club. Big Joe is now 69 and also managed Manchester City, Ipswich and Everton. The move will end 23 years of ownership by former chairman Dave Whelan, who is David Sharpe's grandfather. In that time Whelan took Wigan up through the League from the fourth level to a Premier League outfit who, in 2013, beat Manchester City in the FA Cup final just three days before being relegated.
