Former Oldham Athletic skipper training with Fleetwood Town

Former Oldham captain Peter Clarke is training with Fleetwood Town as reported by Sky Sports News.

Sky are reporting they understand the defender is looking to secure a deal with the Cod Army for next season.

The Latics surprisingly released the thirty-seven-year-old at the end of last season after three years at Boundary Park and a couple of days after he picked up the club’s Player of the Season award for 2018/19.

The much-travelled defender made forty-nine outings for Oldham last term, scoring six goals in a disappointing campaign for the Latics, beset with off-field issues under unpopular ownership.

The defender counts Bury, Blackpool, Huddersfield and Southend amongst his previous clubs after starting at Everton on a long and distinguished career.

Clarke has clocked up nearly seven hundred and fifty games but recently told the Oldham Times: ‘I honestly think I have got plenty to offer a new club, plenty left in the tank, as they say.’


Our View

Sky might be a bit slow on this one has Clarke already turned out for Fleetwood in a friendly with Wrexham last week.

Fleetwood are looking for defensive cover, and Clarke is a tremendous competitor who has kept himself in good shape.

Many Oldham fans were extremely disappointed to see him leave after a great season in a generally poor side last season.

Even at thirty-seven, he could still do an excellent job for Joey Barton and would be a decent signing in our opinion.
