Oldham confirm Diskin as new head coach

Oldham have appointed former Leeds and Bradford hooker Matt Diskin as their new head coach.

The 37-year-old has signed a two-year deal with the club and will lead them into their first season back in the Championship.

Diskin was in charge at Batley for three years before leaving the club in September following a 10th place finish in the Championship.

He succeeds League 1 Coach of the Year nominee Scott Naylor, who has spent the past seven years as Oldham boss.

Naylor went out on a high note at the weekend, as Oldham beat Newcastle 18-14 in the League 1 play-off final to return to the second tier for the first time since 2017.
