Oldham re-sign ex-Salford academy hooker

Oldham have re-signed former Salford academy hooker Matty Wilkinson on a one-year deal for 2021.

The 24-year-old, who has also had spells with Halifax and North Wales, has scored 21 tries in 60 games for the Roughyeds since joining the club in 2017.

He becomes the latest player to commit to the club for next season of late, joining new signings Tyler Dupree and Luke Nelmes.

“We’re getting a good squad together and I think we’ll have a really good dig in the Championship next year,” Wilkinson said. “It’s a big step-up from League 1, but I like the look of the way our squad is coming together.”

Oldham head coach Matt Diskin added: “He has loads of potential. We’ll be bulking-up our front row next season and Wilky will find that beneficial when he’s jumping out of dummy-half.”
