Oldham have signed Dan Abram – son of former centre Darren – on a one-year contact ahead of the 2020 Betfred Championship season.

The 24-year-old fullback or halfback has previously been on the books at St Helens, Barrow Raiders, Whitehaven and Rochdale Hornets.

His father represented Oldham between 1992 and 1997 and crossed over for 64 tries in 127 appearances.

Abram jnr told the club website: “I’m thrilled to be joining Oldham. Matt (Diskin) has spoken to me on the phone and outlined his plans and I’m looking forward to being coached by him and to being part of the Oldham set-up in the Championship.”
