Oldham keep Goodway
Thursday 23 November 1995
Oldham have kept their coach and signed up a former Lancashire cricket captain, writes Dave Hadfield. Andy Goodway, who had been targeted by the new Paris club which is due to join the Super League's inaugural season in March, has agreed a new two-year deal.
At the same time as ending that speculation, Oldham have appointed David Hughes as their media and marketing manager. Hughes, who had a long career as player, captain and coach at Old Trafford, will be in charge of raising the profile of the club in the Super League.
"He is the right sort of character for a club at our level trying to go ahead," Jim Quinn, the Oldham chairman, said.
Quinn was also able to confirm that Goodway would be staying with the club. "I am delighted about that as well," he said. "I think we understand him better in Oldham than they would have done in Paris."
Oldham are still trying to gather outside funding to enable them to make a bid for Bradford Bulls' unsettled centre, Paul Newlove. Bradford, who hope that Newlove will recover from a back ailment to play against Leeds in the Regal Trophy on Sunday, say they have had no official approach.
Oldham, who plan to play most of their Super League games at Oldham Athletic's Boundary Park until their own new stadium is built, are to ask Manchester United and Manchester City about the possibility of playing a match on each of their football grounds.
