Oldham Athletic History
Pine Villa was formed in 1895, but on July 4, 1899 ceased to exist, and this was the birth of Oldham Athletic thanks to a change of name. Latics were a very successful football club in the early 1900s, notably finishing runners-up in the First Division (now known as the Premier League) in 1914-15, and having earlier reached the FA Cup semi-final in 1913. Their success in the top-flight of English football came to an end in 1923 and they would not regain it for 68 years. During this time, most of their football was played in Division Three North, Division Three and Division Four. Latics managed to celebrate three championship-winning campaigns in 1952-53 under the legendary George Hardwick, and in 1973-74, and 1990-91. Here you can find out the latest Oldham Athletic news!
Iconically, they are the only current League Two side who were founder members of the Premier League in its inaugural season back in 1992-93, finishing just above the relegation zone in 19th. Latics managed to stay in the top-flight for three seasons, this includes one season in the First Division before the reformation of the league. Oldham also enjoyed glory in both the FA Cup and League Cup during this period, appearing in the 1990 Littlewoods Cup Final at Wembley, losing 1-0 to the late Brian Clough’s Nottingham Forest. They later lost two semi-finals to Manchester United, and their 1990 appearance in the last four was their first foray to that stage since 1913, once again, Latics managed to reach the semi-finals of the FA Cup in 1994.
In recent years, Latics were forced to go into administration in the summer of 2003, until three American-based businessmen; Simon Blitz, Simeon Corney, and Danny Gazal purchased the club by the end of the year. Latics spent 21 seasons playing in League One, where they were involved in many relegation battles until their time came to say farewell to the division at the end of the 2017-18 season. Oldham were relegated after finishing 21st, and have since struggled to regain their spot in the third tier of English Football under Tunisian manager Dino Maamria, who was appointed as head coach in September 2019.
Oldham Athletic have played all of their home matches at Boundary Park since the birth of the club in 1899. The Greater Manchester located stadium has an all-seater capacity of 13,512, making it one of the largest in League Two.
