Oldham have announced that head coach Scott Naylor will step down at the end of the season.

Naylor will depart following seven years as boss of the Roughyeds.

“But like everything else things come to an end and following the conclusion of this season we will both move on, parting on good terms.

“There is still an awful lot to play for this season and I know both Scott and the players will be fully focused on the remaining games.

“In the meantime the club will begin its search for a replacement.

“We hope to have our biggest crowd of the season at the Vestacare Stadium this Sunday for what should be a cracker of a game against Newcastle Thunder.

“The end of the season, which we all hope will be another successful one, will be the appropriate time to look back at Scott’s long spell in charge.”
